Over the last couple of years I followed the work of the DREaM project, aimed at building a community of LIS researchers in the UK. Effective event amplification provided me with an introduction to social network analysis (SNA; nearly two years ago now!) and a host of other research methods, ultimately a catalyst for my [...]
IWMW is the annual conference for Web managers in UK higher/further education. IWMW 2013 may well be the last conference in this form at least, a plain old victim of the cuts, but also questioning once more the sustainability of the big annual conference – it is worth asking if the formal conference still has legs, [...]
Haven’t done a plain links post for ages. I’m trying to get away from lists, but perhaps a few annotated links can be a good way of tracking current interests. Or a nice Sunday displacement activity. Events…many are still completely unamplified or curated, but for this seminar on the power of social media to support [...]
It’s law conference season! I’m digital curator for #bileta13, so it merits a separate post. Here are the basics: website - programme (5 page PDF) available from conference proceedings page, together with yay! 44 pages of abstracts (PDF warning) and nine other docs Twitter - @bileta | #bileta13 (not on site) – see the searchable archive | network and statistics pre-conference buzz – [...]
Social Media Camp Copenhagen has raised a lot of questions about events which I’m still pondering. Why was there so little reporting or reflecting, not to mention knowledge extraction, from either the participants or the organisers?
The VirComm Summit took place on 7 February in London. No time to catch up b4 or during, but it’s been well curated by eModeration, with a Storify slideshow (63!) and Pinterest. Plus it’s on nOtice.
Here’s an update on Social Media Week Copenhagen, taking place from 18-22 February. Things have moved on from my earlier post - there’s a bit of buzz about from the ‘agency’ perspective (K Forum | content marketing) plus a load of new events, some picked up on via Facebook or Twitter, but mainly by painstakingly going through the [...]
Vidensfestival 2013 took place on 26 January in Copenhagen. The tweets give a rather fuller picture of Denmark today than happy clappy TEDx and friends.
On the UK R4 comedy show Just a Minute you can be penalised for listing. Can it be useful though? David Kelly, lister extraordinaire, must have started listing #lt13uk way back, and published the outcome on 25 January: Learning Technologies 2013 Conference Backchannel: Curated Resources #LT13UK – Go Caps! Didn’t think much about europe’s leading [...]
Not many events to pick apart in December, so here’s a roundup of emerging (and shifting) event wrapups instead.
