Backnoise is Awesomesauce & Annoying.

by SimplySharpe on September 25, 2009

Today I discovered the coolest thing since sliced bread, it’s called BackNoise.

What is this awesomesauce she speaks of?

It’s a website where you say all the things you are thinking (but not supposed to verbalize) during a meeting. It’s free, it’s fabulous, it’s fun! It can also be an extremely helpful tool when a few of the coolest cats in the ATL are hosting their first Social Media Conference and people want to give feedback. Even the snarky stuff. In fact, it says on the front page V2.0, now with more snark. Set the expectations.

In the morning, I was not that into Backnoise and found it distracting, annoying, addicting and overwhelming. I could not wrap my big brain around the concept of people using yet another third party application to comment on anything. More noise? Why are you even attending this conference if you are not feeling it?

Then the cool cats started to up the ante. They were following the commentary too. Playing the game if you will. In a good way. There was one person I wanted to hurt and a few friends who went so boldly anonymous with snarkiness. It’s easy to do anything anonymously. Yeah, remember my old blog Randomly Fabulous? Enough said.

So the snarky chatter went on and on for eternity until the perfect panel happened. Jeff Turner, Bert Dumars, Peter Fasano and Seth Miller. The dream team. If you have any interest in Social Media or life in general your ears and eyes were on them.

Backnoise just got awesome! Plus, my Tweetdeck was down making it mandatory for my sanity. I have severe ADD if you don’t know me (yet) and need to be communicating at all times. I am working on my talk time issues. Promise!

While I do that, I hope I just spilled some awesomesauce on your shoes.

Thanks for playing!

ANOTHER fab tech thing?? No more, my head’s gonna explode! Twitter, tweet ups, social media marketing, networking, wordpress, blogs, all the associated stats… What did I get into by becoming your friend? :p

I wouldn’t trade it, though. ^.^

A whole new world.
A dazzling digital place you never knew.
Unbelievable sites.
Soaring, tumbling, tweeting!

You are rocking the new world, FYI!!!
