VideoGuide.ro – See HD Clips of the Touristic Attractions in Romania

I bring you my newest Romanian startup: VideoGuide – Watch HD Movies of the Major Touristic Attractions in Romania and (soon to come) SE Europe.

I truly believe this initiative will help build the Romanian Touristic Brand our current Ministry is striving to create. Better than inventing jolly songs, we trust that seeing professional shots of the Romanian sights will be much more beneficial.

No beta this time, things work out of the box, dead simple: click & watch. We’ve started off with 2 major cities like Bucharest & Brasov. And we’ll soon add the seaside and other well known sights.

On VideoGuide.ro you’ll find: Hotels, Restaurants, Bars, Clubs and everything you need to see before travelling to Romania.

Amongst its cool features:

  • HD movies of Brasov & Bucharest wich you can
  • easily embed on your page (sorry I can’t show you, WP.com doesn’t allow it)
  • RSS feed with latest locations added
  • visitor comments and impressions for any location

Amongst its cool future features, we’ll add:

  • Social Networking with Google Friend Connect and FaceBook Connect
  • Google Maps navigation and paths
  • youtube & flickr mashup
  • tagging locations

Plenty of stuff needs to be done, until then, grab some popcorn and start watching Romania Video Guide:

SEO Kung Fu

My presentation from GeekMeet Brasov #1

It was a great experience for me as an organizer, things went a lot better than I expected. Thanks to all the participants and especially to the lovely speakers:

    I hope to see an even greater happening at the second event.

    Also the Romanian version of my presentation.

    Yahoo soon to drop 360 for Mosh

    Hype from TechCrunch says Y! is building up a new SNC that will replace the unsuccessful Y360. Mosh can be accessed only from Y! internal offices.

    But the even more interesting fact is that it seems Nokia’s also cooking up a Mosh.

    It’s about time they did something social. It will probably depend on their new MobileWebServer, a better, friendlier (only-available-for-s60-3rd-generation) version of Raccoon, the experimental Python port of Apache for mobile devices.

    Facebook Works

    Peter Brantley blogs about his experience with students at Scholarly Communication Institute 05.

    What I learned, and what was new to me, was just how intrinsic the use of Facebook is today among younger scholars – grad students and junior faculty – in their scholarship and teaching. Facebook, for now, is often the place where they work, collaborate, share, and plan. Grad students may run student projects using Facebook groups; they may communicate amongst each other in inter-institutional (multi-university) research projects; they may announce speakers and special events to their communities.

    Most Interesting Web2.0 Startups in Europe

    I came across startup 2.0, “a competition of European web 2.0 sites whose objectives are to promote and reward the European startups (either created or willing to do so in the future) that work in the field of 2.0 technologies”via Robin Good.

    Search for startups in Romania returned 2 results:

    So much for enthusiastic web2.0 entrepreneurs in Romania.

    I know for sure I’m going to subscribe to this contest next year, with at least one of my projects (soon-to-come-v2 hartafirmelor.ro and some other top-secret webapps).

    Any other future participants out there?
