Live Tweeting vs Live Blogging
At the Toronto WordCamp 2008, I live-blogged, and that was fun:
At WordCamp Toronto, 2009, I Tweeted using the hashtag #wct09, and that was fun, and more social for a couple of reasons.
- I was less focussed on getting every piece of wisdom and could relate more f2f with the people around me; and
- I could have conversations via Twitter with others at wct09 (if they were using the hashtag) pick up pieces of wisdom from their tweets, and talk f2f with them after meeting on Twitter.
So, for me, with the current social applications, Live Tweeting was a richer experience than Live Blogging, but both were fun.
I learned from the mix of new information in presentations and conversations around and between the sessions, and my most frequest conversationalists were –
- Dawn – http://www.dawncomber.com
- Alfred – http://www.butterscotch.com
- Ruth – http://www.dandelionwebdesign.com
- Clarence – http://www.picpu.com/
I enjoyed great conversations on shared interests with them – who could ask for anything more?
- Erin Blaskie was very interesting – http://www.erinblaskie.com/ – Her social media case study was amazing! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XtscIOwTvSU
- Leveraging Social Media, which I embedded in a previous post –https://joanvinallcox.wordpress.com/2009/05/09/wct09-leveraging-social-media/
- Joey DeVilla – Accordian Guy with fascinating stories –
- James Walker – Your Blog is Your Social Network
There was much more of value there, and others will be blogging about WordCamp Toronto 2009, but this is my contribution for now.
