The first randomly selected audience winner today at the RealTime CrunchUp is SuperFeedr. They are an API service that works with both XMPP and PubSubHubbub (which launched at the first CrunchUp) to create realtime content feeds.
As they noted on stage, it’s hard to demo something that is API only, but one implementation that we’ve written about before is Excla.im, which we wrote about recently. This allows for the realtime tracking of keywords on Twitter via IM. But this idea works for all content.
And one of the most interesting thing about SuperFeedr is their promises. One is that if you don’t get your content served in less than 15 minutes, it’s free. Another promise is that they will meet or beat the cost of your existing system for monitoring feeds.
If you monitor less than 1,000 feeds, SuperFeedr is free. If you go over that, you must buy credits (but it’s pretty cheap).
Coincidentally, SuperFeedr just 3 days ago raised a seed round of funding from Betaworks and Mark Cuban.
