On May 20th, 2012, Team Blogcastr will be taking on the second annual Gran Fondo New York. The 100 mile course will take us from the George Washington Bridge to Bear Mountain and include 8,500 feet of climbing. Training has already commenced and we are in the process of ordering some slick Blogcastr training kits. If are interested in placing an order let us know!
Blogcastr is teaming up with All American Beer Pong to throw a startup party for the ages. On a date to be announced, the Boston startup community will gather to determine which startup is home to the finest athletes, i.e. the best beer pong players. Accuracy, hand-eye coordination, and endurance will all be tested in a 32 team battle. Teams are strongly encouraged to come donning startup swag and share what they are working on with the community.
Team Blogcastr is looking forward to a night of startup smack talk, gamesmanship, and good times. For updates and banter check out @StartupPong! We will keep the details rolling as they become available.
Practice makes perfect. #StartupPong

After a short three business day wait, the Blogcastr app is officially available through the app store! Among other things the app lets you create and update blogcasts, repost comments, and get real-time stats. If you don’t currently have an account you can easily sign-up from within the app. Want to check it out? Click here.
Coming soon (v. 1.1): The ability to share an entire blogcast or specific post to Facebook and Twitter.
Matt made a final push on Tuesday night/ Wednesday morning to send version 1.0 of the Blogcastr iPhone app off to Apple for review. Special thanks to our unofficial sponsor Mtn. Dew for making it all possible. Hoping for a release this week!
Blogcastr was incorporated on August 9th, 2010, and thus celebrated its first birthday yesterday! The past 365 days have been full of notable experiences for us especially designing, developing, and launching Blogcastr beta earlier this year.
We were able to attend and/or demo at dozens of great startup events around Boston including RubyRiot, Mass Innovation Nights, Capitalize, Dart Dinner, BarCamp, Boston New Tech Meetup, Open Coffee, Tech Tuesday and WebInno, and met tons of great people along the way. One of the most exciting parts of this process for us has been sharing awesome experiences with our friends. Our most memorable blogcasts of the past year include Bruins vs. Canadiens, Celtics vs. Bobcats, Century Ride 2K11, Salt Lake City Airport (a.k.a. the longest layover of all time!), The Hoover Dam, The River Walk, The Vegas Strip, and Tiësto in Concert.
Although the past year has been exciting, we are even more excited about our next steps. We are currently putting the finishing touches on our native iPhone app and can’t wait to see what sorts of stuff people begin to share. More to come soon…
Over the past month, we have been cranking out code on our native iPhone app. A ton of “behind the scenes” work has been done and things are really starting to come together. Needless to say, we are pretty f#$%ing excited and we can’t wait to let the app out into the wild! Here are a few early screen shots / wireframes:
Wanna see the app in action? Tomorrow we will be heading over to RubyRiot for what is lining up to be one of the best tech events in Boston this year. Of course, we will be blogcasting and sharing lots of photos with the community. Check it out here!
Since our last post we have been working hard designing and developing a native iPhone app. We are really excited about it and can’t wait to get it out the door (not there yet but stayed tuned). And if you like #winning cool stuff, we are planning an awesome contest to celebrate its release! More to come…
In February, we demoed at Mass Innovation Night and checked out Performable’s office warming party which turned out to be a great event. We also learned that live blogging is referred to as blogging en tiempo real in Spanish.
Keep the blogcasts coming!
