We launched Phase I of Active.com Realtime in order to prove a few concepts - namely A) that we could create an extensible infrastructure that efficiently taps into the activity happening on Active.com and B) that there was interest in this sort of thing. Before we launched, we knew the technology was sound, but we were pleasantly surprised to the positive reaction external and internal audiences had to the prototype. So, we embarked on Phase II with the aim of improving design and incorporating different types of data.
I'm happy to announce the availability of Active.com Realtime, Phase II at http://labs.active.com/realtime. Active.com Realtime is to showcases what people in a given city are searching for, registering for, and the results their viewing on active.com right now. The goal of the site is to help you make a decision about what event you might like to participate in by showing you what's popular in your area.
Here's a screencast explaining Active.com Realtime's features:
