Denmark shuts down in July, but the rest of the world carries on, in fact it was a hectic month.
I’ve set up a second blog to record my explorations into the world of social media research and experiments with WordPress. Danegeld is now running in on Suffusion, and I’m getting more into post formats and series, posting daily on #london2012 plus taking a closer look at #localgov in the UK and Denmark.
On the theme of Law Teacher 2.0, the month was dominated by the fallout from LawTechCamp London – see Reinventing the law conference. I also did a quick roundup of CALIcon 2012 and had a quick shufty at:
- #aall12 - American Association of Law Librarians conference, huge! Packed schedule in need of a tag cloud or other form of keyword access, resources post on the Legal Informatics blog inc a link to a Twitter archive
- #subtech2012 - a biannual conference which tends to the exclusive – perhaps a bit of a stretch to call it an unconference but maybe it felt like that if you were invited…tweets archived though plus another handy resources post, diligent livetweeting from @berkphil, @computational, @johnpmayer, @monicangoyal and @stephkimbro with a selection in @stephkimbro’s review
Useful links corner:
- 10 ways to make your webinar a more social event – also applies to hybrid events, chats etc
- The PhD’s guide to academic conferences – includes a handy overview of nametag etiquette
- Engagement on a shoestring – nice case study of coverage going beyond the event
And finally, flagging up a really shiny new thing - Eventifier archives “all your event photos, videos, slides, tweets, conversations and much more” – for the Guardian’s Activate Summit they’ve got 95 pics and 2130 tweets from 507 contributors. Only scrolling on offer, but probably more options for event organisers. This possibly goes some way towards creating an Eventalyser.
Update, 7 August: a couple of posts on Eventifier – Brian Kelly (UK Web Focus) | Julian Solaris (Event Manager Blog) compares it to Storify, although a “more automated way to organize conversations and media”, and contrasts it with Lanyrd, “where discovery and networking seem to be priorities”. In the comments Epilogger gets a mention, which looks interesting. I’ve tried both out – see Aggregating #oldk in my #london2012 series.
