The Entire D6 Demo of TransMedia's Glide

We’re posting all the interviews from the sixth D: All Things Digital conference that took place in late May.

Unfortunately, due to issues too complicated to go into, we have to post all the D6 interviews in several 15-minute parts (I know, I know).

But–as many readers have requested–they will all be available in their entirety in this column.

In the less contentious spirit of DEMOfall and TechCrunch50, two demo conferences taking place simultaneously this week, we’re happy to bring you all the demos we had onstage at D6.

First up is TransMedia’s Glide, an operating system that cuts across all operating systems.

There are two videos showing the whole demo below.

In the first one, TransMedia Chairman and CEO Donald Leka walks Walt and Kara through Glide on Mac OSX, Windows and the iPhone.

In the second, Leka demos the engaging kids’ version of Glide, shows how the OS runs in a browser on an iPhone and talks about the company’s business model.

Social media tools are the latest in a long line of time-stealers in the workplace, following in the footsteps of March Madness brackets, afternoon golf games, morning water cooler gossip or cigarette breaks. But social media like Twitter and Facebook are more visible from a distance (of both time and space), so they are easier to criticize and quantify.
