CHNL Brings the Best in Music to Streamy Awards' Official After-Party

Recently Launched Social Media Content Browser Will Curate Event With Guest DJs Jason Bentley of KCRW and CHNL CEO John Wander

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/15/13 -- CHNL (http://chnl.it), the social content discovery browser, today announced that it will co-produce the official exclusive after-party for this year's Streamy Awards, the first held since 2010. The after-party will include DJ sets from KCRW's Jason Bentley ("Morning Becomes Eclectic") and CHNL co-founder and CEO John Wander. Bentley and Wander previously performed separate DJ sets at Social Media Week Los Angeles' "Social 25" Party last September.

"It seems like there's a popular new social network every month, creating a discordant experience in our online lives. I like to think of CHNL as the harmonic convergence of all these social networks. I'm glad to be working with John and everyone at CHNL to bring some in-person harmonic convergence to the Streamys after-party," said Bentley.

Bentley has been at KCRW, Santa Monica's popular public radio station and an innovator in the freeform music radio format, for over 20 years. He has also served as the music director and host of the station's flagship "Morning Becomes Eclectic" program since 2008, and has worked as a music supervisor for such films as The Matrix trilogy and Tron: Legacy.

"Jason has helped set the bar when it comes to defining a 21st century curator," said Wander, who has worked for many years as a House/Techno DJ, angel investor and entrepreneur, including his work with CHNL. "Ultimately, we want CHNL to be the 'Jason Bentley' for all your online content, whether that's your favorite new song or web video. The Streamys are a perfect opportunity for us to work together again. This is the kind of audience that looks to someone like Jason to fill out their musical diet and looks to a platform like CHNL to fill out their online diet."

CHNL offers the quickest way for users to scan the social media content most important to them, while discovering the best videos, music, photos, and news they might not even know about. Last year, CHNL launched a public beta for discovering shared content across a broad range of social networks, including Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram, YouTube, Flickr, Soundcloud and Tumblr, and has since added local deals engines such as Groupon and LivingSocial. In 2011, the company helped the acclaimed DJ duo Thievery Corporation establish an exclusive direct-to-fan page.

"Just in the last couple of years, the social media landscape is such that a resource like CHNL is the only way to stay updated on your favorite music group or web personality. It's not like a decade ago where MySpace was the only social entertainment go-to. Today, your favorite music artist might not just be on Twitter, they could also have pages established on SoundCloud and even Instagram. CHNL is the one place where you can keep full tabs on your favorite artists socially," added Wander.

The third annual Streamy Awards presented by CocaCola will be hosted this year by "The Nerdist" Chris Hardwick at the Hollywood Palladium. This also marks the first time the awards are being co-produced by dick clark Productions and Tubefilter. The Streamy Awards After-Party is scheduled for Sunday, February 17, 2013 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the rooftop of the Andaz Hotel in West Hollywood.

When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...

IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.).

Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.
Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
"Akvelon is a software development company and we also provide consultancy services to folks who are looking to scale or accelerate their engineering roadmaps," explained Jeremiah Mothersell, Marketing Manager at Akvelon, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 21st Cloud Expo, held Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
