CILIP 2.0 – following the debate online
Posted by gazjjohnson on 29 April, 2009
Being the notes of my experiences as I take part in the CILIP Web 2.0 remotely this afternoon. Thought it might make for an interesting read
2.31 Taking part in 2.31 manage to get back from previous meeting and into Twitterfall.
2.40 Wonder if there’s a sign I can wear to stop people talking to me in RL while I follow debate?
2.42 Enjoying the Twitterfall, and chipping in with the odd comment. Seem to have picked up a few more followers too.
2.46 Checking some emails and sorting out some other issues as well. Wonder how many submissions I can make to the LRA during this debate?
2.55 Phil’s finished, and Brian Kelly’s coming on now. Trying not to get too distracted by discussions of Secret Invasion plans as they relate to CILIP
3.01 Enjoying Matthew at CILIP Update’s Blog on the event as well – since he’s in the room it actually makes for a good back up to Twitterfall
3.04 That said, amazing how easy it is to follow the narrative of what is being said (or the key points) from a secondary perspective. So many of the people who are tweeting aren’t in the room, yet thanks to their.
3.10 Okay – I need two (or ideally three) monitors to follow this. Maybe I should have put money for that in the SM@LL bid. I miss having two monitors.
3.15 Comment about the phone with regards to coms being blocked. After all yes blogs/tweeting et al can be used for non-work things. But then so can the phone. So will we block people using the phone? Oh hang on, we do in most libraries (tolerance zone here though)
4.40 Well that was useful – not helped midway by WordPress dying on me. Not to mention Twitter (for a bit) and Twitterfall (a couple of times). All the same it has been a really interesting experience, really healthy debate – though I’m feeling a bit shell shocked after focusing on the screen for 2 hours solid.
