Following the CHIRP Twitter conference, thought leaders will gather to discuss new ways for using real-time technology. There will be some light refreshments. Talks will be recorded with permission from the speakers. Time permitting, we'll also watch a few classic TED Talks from people working in the field.
The goal of the night is primarily to continue the conversation on real-time applications and their various uses started at CHIRP.
