Event Technologies workshop: slides.

As flagged a month or two back I recently took part in a workshop organised by Edinburgh Napier, or more specifically my colleagues at the university.  The theme was ‘event technologies’, from planning and logistics software to virtual meeting spaces, and my contribution was focused on social media.  I’m indebted to having attended similar workshops in the past – primarily aimed at an industry audience, this is an area where academia needs to catch up.

I think my bit went OK, although I overran (with permission of the others who were there!).  Here are my slides:

And this is the three minute video I showed at the end on the use of social media in the UK (2010) – great music, lovely clip.
