Here is a quick interview we took:

Imagine you needed your own network for your small business based on connecting your community of customers. If you are organizing event and want to be able to establish a quick network so that all attendees can have their own stream based on the common factor that they are attending the same event. It is possible to hack this using social networks like Twitter etc by using a hashtag. For example the South by South est hashtag is #sxsw. You can follow the conversation about #sxsw by putting the hashtag into the Twitter search box or even doing a search on Google or Bing.
