The internet has become a hotbed of real-time technologies, and not to be outdone, Teton Gravity Research is taking advantage of the ever-expanding options of communication. TGR's Live from the Field platform, a service in which the production team and pro athletes upload real-time videos via their iPhones, is now connected to the real-time, mini-blogging service Twitter.
@TGRLive is TGR's new twitter feed that updates automatically with the videos uploaded through Live from the Field. Although still in its infancy, @TGRLive connects fans, athletes, and crew into a common, real-time environment.
To celebrate the @TGRLive launch, TGR will be crowd sourcing questions through its social media channels to be answered by pro athletes. The first crowd-sourced interview will be with Sage Cattabriga-Alosa.
