Founder & Lead Shouter
Norm Levy has always been in the forefront of new technology. In the year 2000, he established his first Start-up called Media Street, in which he developed one of the world’s first digital ink and paper solutions that would allow you to print digital photos that were tested and rated to last beyond 100 years before noticeable fading or color shift. Media Street sold its ink and papers to more than 100 countries before Levy sold the business. During the height of its sales of products used for the “print” side of digital photographs, Levy had the foresight to develop and manufacture one of the first lines of Digital Photo Frames that would allow you to view, rather than have to print, your digital photos 24/7, at any time, anywhere.
Levy developed one of the first Digital Photo Frames that would allow photos to wirelessly stream to the Frame from a web platform. LifeGoRound was demonstrated by Sheryl Sandberg, COO of Facebook, at a Walter Mossberg Conference in Silicon Valley and was Levy’s first social web platform that lead to his “Aha” moment to create ShoutOmatic.
Shoutomatic, Levy’s latest start-up, allows you to record “Audible Status Updates” (Shouts) that automatically post to your Twitter and Facebook streams adding authenticity, emotion and tonality that is not possible with 140 characters of text alone. Oh, and by the way, you can also share photos to your social networks using ShoutOmatic with the added ability of telling your friends and followers all about them with your own voice.
