Webcasts worth watching

We’ve just posted the recordings of two of our recent webcasts, both of which are on fascinating topics. The first was presented by Shelly Farnham, Ph.D., author of the recent O’Reilly Radar report The Facebook Application Ecosystem: Why Some Thrive—and Most Don’t.

The second webcast was presented by Peter Merholz, president and one of the founders of Adaptive Path. Peter’s webcast is called Adaptive Path’s Subject to Change: Creating Great Products and Services for an Uncertain World, which is also the name of his recent book.

The Facebook Application Ecosystem: Why Some Thrive—and Most Don’t

Shelly’s webcast is a 45-minute live presentation on the same topic as her research report, namely, what makes Facebook applications fail or thrive, followed by questions and answers from the audience. You can download and watch the entire presentation here. Find out what the killer apps on Facebook all have in common and the features you need to include in your apps to make them successful.

If you’re not sure you want to commit to the entire presentation, check out the ten-minute YouTube trailer here:

In his fast-paced presentation, Peter shows how successful businesses can—and should—use customer experiences to inform and shape the product development process, from start to finish. The entire presentation, including q&a, lasts approximately one-hour. Download it here. And fyi, among his other claims to fame, Peter’s thought leadership is perhaps most dubiously demonstrated in his coining of the term “blog” back in 1999. Now you know who to thank.
