Intel Software Network Wins AMA MAX Award!
Last Thursday the American Marketing Association selected my team as winner of the Annual MAX Award in the area of Non-Traditional Single Media Advertising. The finalist included SawStop, Icebreaker, Port of Vancouver, Mt Hood Meadows, Oregon Lottery and Adidas MLS. It is an honor to work with such talented people every week and I thank them for all of their support!
To give you a little background, I’m the Parallel Programming Community Manager on the Intel® Software Network (ISN). Our online community that provides software developers with cutting-edge technical information about computer chips and supporting platform technology. People in the community create connections through conversation. Simply providing the information does not ensure understanding, adoption or goodwill for Intel. To expand our interaction and provide better support we have implemented forums, blogs and all the social media bells and whistles, but the conversation really sparked with the addition of live streaming audio and video programming.
The Intel Software Network Team developed three original programs: Parallel Programming Talk, Teach Parallel and Visualize This! for three specific audiences. The programs are broadcast on a regular basis and each has a similar format. Developers can tune in to the streams, listen to world-class developers talk about their passions and watch demonstrations of these applications of Intel software technology.
The shows have been a huge success with developers. The shows were broadcast every Tuesday thought the year and steadily ramped with a loyal base of followers. We have received 25,025 video views and 35,968 audio streams for the 134 episodes produced. That comes to an average of 455 per episode compared to an average of 1,091 views for the top 40,00 technical papers and blogs posts on the Intel Software site in 2009.
Developers can watch the live broadcasts every Tuesday on Intel Software Network Television (ISN TV) at: http://intel.com/software/tv.
