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.
Last December I wrote a post on tracking Twitter chats. What’s happened since?
I’m yet to find a chat which hits my personal Venn diagram, so I tend to lurk and curate, rather than participate. Over on my CPD blog there are posts on #nsmnss chats (highlighted in the latest #nsmnss Storify) and on MyCMgr’s innovative combined Twitter chat and Google+ hangout – see Synchronised tweeting and Community management and startups.
Part of my motivation for MOOCing was to see how the learning management system (LMS) and any associated tools worked in practice, from a content perspective. I found both LMSs (Coursera and Moodle) lacking in terms of design and usability. They looked outdated, were not ‘fun’ to use and contributed to my not engaging with [...]
