the bbc blogs and some special guests

There are no tags 0 comments

Recently I’ve been kept quite busy organising, amongst other things, a big blogging event here at the BBC. It’s internal (sorry) but various people are going to be blogging, twittering and otherwise telling the world outside the firewall about it.

The purpose of the event is to bring some of the BBC’s bloggers and various stakeholders in the BBC Blogs Network face-to-face with some leading bloggers from outside the BBC for an afternoon of thoughtful discussion on the purpose of the BBC’s blogs and their future.

Those taking part from within the BBC are a good mix of people with different roles, skills and backgrounds and included are a number of senior editors from some of the BBC’s top news and current affairs programmes on tv and radio, website producers and developers, on air talent, a good contingent from the BBC’s inhouse College of Journalism, someone from the BBC’s inhouse newspaper Ariel, and even a BBC director.

Rory Celland-Jones, the BBC’s Technology correspondent, will introduce our external contributors who include Jeff Jarvis, Graham Holliday, Adriana Cronin-Lukas and Lee Bryant contributing. Check their blogs later to see what they have to say about the day.

Ian from BBC Backstage is planning to shoot and post some video and there will probably be some twittering and blogging going on, either on official BBC blogs or on the personal blogs of various members of staff, and I’ll try to round up links to those later today if I get the chance.

Why cybersoc.com? In 1995, I tried to register, for the purposes of researching "ordinary users", the username Cybersociologist on AOL. They truncated my name and I stuck with it....
