I was enormously proud of all the people who turned up today to help voluntary groups in Birmingham better understand the power of the social web. I’ll revise this tomorrow but just want to pop up some links before stopping for the day….
http://gerimoshers.wordpress.com/ is the new experimental blog of one visitor who will use it to explore social media before plunging her network of volunteers who support victims of domestic violence into the world of the conversational web. Why this blog? She wants to write about older folk who like to mosh!
http://jdcbirmingham.wordpress.com/2008/10/15/our-new-blog/ is the first full post for a blog established for the Birmingham branch of the Jubilee debt campaign. This might be their first trackback!
8 tea arts blog.
Leonardo experienced an epiphany in audio.
We didn’t stop. Lots of social media types were helping several people at once. About 14 folk turned up to offer knowledge, I reckon closer to 3 times that came looking for help. The photo above is the room we booked, others spilled out into the hall ways where they talked and looked and listened and learnt. When we called a halt some people moaned and asked for more!
So I’ll find the other posts for this tomorrow, digest and re-write. If I’ve missed a blog created there let me know and I’ll add. But in the meantime thanks to BVSC for supporting the idea and to everyone who came along and helped spread the word.
