pulse_logo_stream.jpgEvery so often, our readers write to us wondering how they can get some insight into how our team works. Instead of putting up videos or photos, we decided that it would be pretty cool to make you all part of our daily workflow. I sat down with Gregory Koberger, one of our summer interns (he comes to us from Rochester Institute of Technology) and an awesome programmer, to come up with The GigaOM Pulse.

It basically aggregates all the tweets from our team and others who are related to our work day. This allows you, the readers, to actually keep an eye on what the whole team is doing as well as on what everyone is reading, sharing or musing about. It’s also a place where you can subscribe to the individual Twitter feeds of our team members.

You’re subscribed! If you like, you can update your settings

  2. marry the pulse with your real-time streaming of drafts, posts, comments, wikis, calendars, etc and you got yourself a GigaOm “wave”….

    1. haha… that is funny. it would be a funny small wave though ;-)

    2. LOL well that would be a tsunami personally don’t think media companies should open up that much it would be way too much info to consume put am sure it would help the next gen of writers though to understand the complexities and thought process of the biz ;)

  3. Om,

    Very cool.

    Any chance of putting the platform in the public domain (a form of open-source software)?

    1. I was also about to ask for the same thing. Would be nice if this could be open-sourced !!

    2. Its already available in form of TweetKnot try out http://tweetknot.com You will like it for sure

      1. I see you are touting your service ;-) how about a small disclosure about that before you type and recommend a service.

  4. wow thats awesome guys looks nice a pretty neat twitter aggregater few things missing but looking fwd to the code opening up so i can play around with it :)

      What would you like to see?

      1. om would like to see pagination for the history of the tweets and also tweets streamed with the date when the tweet stream for the day ends and the new one begins that would help in clubbing the activity of the day together in the stream itself and make it easy for us to grasp what a gigaom employees day feels like :) also how abt an rss feed for the latest 10 entries on gigaom pulse

  5. Looks cool. Excited to start reading it. Also glad to see a student from my alma mater (the Rochester Institute of Technology) representing. Go Tigers!

  6. When is the Gigaom podcast comming back!! You can keep your tweets, twits, twats or whaterver you call them

  7. contributing to the wish list: how about an iPhone app for Gigaom — pulse can be an interesting part of that. rather than the app replicating the online content, it could be a mobile ‘pulse’ of the gigaom nation and lead users to read the referenced posts if they’d like otherwise they get their byte sized snacking – untethered…

  8. I’d like an RSS Feed of the Pulse.

    I think it’s a fundamental characteristic that’s missing.

    It’d be nice to sort by person & responsibilities as well, aside from being sortable by (Stream/Today/This Week/This Month). It would add greater functionality.

    Also, love that you put this up.

  9. Some Minor Upgrades, Tweaks to GigaOM Monday, August 3, 2009

    [...] improving our readers’ experience. The first of these was the GigaOM Pulse, which aggregates the tweets from our entire team. We will be soon be enhancing the Pulse to support multimedia and will add other, additional [...]

  10. Om Malik, You necessarily didn’t have to put in so much effort for this. You could have easily created a Knot on http://tweetknot.com and followed all the team Gigaom members. I like tweetknot, its cool
