Show #69 Gina Trapani of ThinkTank and Smarterware.org
This week Bob and Pat talk with Gina Trapani; developer, regular on the This Week in Google podcast, former lead writer of Lifehacker.com. We talk with Gina about her latest project – ThinkTank – an open source insights engine for collecting and organizing social media responses. And we cover social productivity, Google Wave, and Expert Labs, which is supporting ThinkTank and connecting policy makers to the social graph. We also talk with Gina about gender and sexual orientation issues in the Startup World and in IT in general.
