Introducing Live Tweeting!

And now… the project that has been keeping me just a little bit busy from you!

Live tweeting is a real-time interactive web application for multi-language live coverage, based on micro blogging service twitter. Dec 9 – 10 is “the” internet event of Europe, Le Web, and this application will allow Arabic speakers to follow the event live & translated! I will also be translating on Twitter tomorrow.

I got to design the livetweeting visual identity & website, and got to do some illustrations that you can discover throughout the website ;)

Here is a scoop for you my darlings:

Illustration to represent LiveTweeting from the floor of Le Web:

Illustration to represent Crowdsourced Arabic Translation:

Illustration for wrong URL page (404):

Illustration for Error page (500):

Now it’s true that I’ve overnighted a couple of times on this project :P , but the biggest credit is due to the team who worked on it, Samer Karam (who came up with the concept), Beshr Kayali (who developed the whole site! and in very very short time!), Mohammad Kayali (who did the amazing video you just watched!), and supporters, contributors: Meedan.net, Maroun Najm, Omar Christidis, Habib Haddad, Emile Cubeisy, Elie El Khoury… What do you guys think of the outcome?

See you tomorrow on www.livetweeting.com!

And last but not least, here’s a beautiful song to brighten up your day :) ‘Make Peace’ by Brad Mehldau & Pat Metheny (WHAT  a combo!)

    HI Maya,

    I think you should link to Mohammad’s & Bashir’s podcasting blog too , as it has a lot of arabic resources on IT stuff.

    I am enjoying the livetweeting today, but Maya, we miss your real posts :)
