I just finished participating in the Toastmasters International Speech Contest for Area 45. It was held at AOL’s headquarters building in Dulles, VA, which I hadn’t been in since early 2008 when I used to work for AOL.
It looks like RubyNation will be doing an online photo contest using the Votridea Online Contest Platform (which I helped create). I’ll post more news as it becomes available.
My team’s been working for months now on the Votridea Online Video Contest Platform, and it just soft-launched today. The platform can do video and photo contests, is cloud-based, fully-scalable and robust (since it’s based on the real-world experiences we got running international contests for the Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs).
My company, MetroStar Systems, just a launched a new product called Votridea. It’s a contest platform, generalized from our ExchangesConnect online video contest, that can foster brand awareness, build social communities and promote innovation.
