At this very moment (I’ve set this up to auto-publish), I should be stepping up on the stage at the Below you’ll find the presentation I just gave at the Embracing New Media conference in Amsterdam. Forty-two slides in around half an hour. Why do I do this to myself?! Some of the audience twittered their comments. The main points of my presentation – my recipe for blogging and social media goodness for corporates – are: Get to know participatory norms of different spaces – technique over tools Learn how to find and track the conversation Empower staff with clear guidelines Understand that social media and blogging make it possible to communicate in many voices and in many spaces… and that’s a good thing Weave social media into your processes or you’ll just create another burden on staff | View | Upload your own PS. Many thanks to Drew Benvie who responded to my last minute call, on twitter, for examples of staff personal blog links. They’re not in this set of slides but were essential background research.

my skopje interviews on bbc 5 live’s pods and blogs

By on May 27, 2008 in BBC, blogging, conferences/events, journalism |

The (G)Local 2.0 Conference, which I recently attended at New York University, Skopje, Macedonia brought together academics, bloggers and members of the mainstream media from across former Yugoslavia and from further afield. It was a fascinating conference for me because, rather than the same people giving the same presentations as I’d heard at the last conference, glocal was full of new voices, new perspectives and new ideas. On my last day at the conference, I was able to take some time to interview some of the other speakers at the conference, including: • Darko Buldioski from the New Media Centre in Skopje and one of the organisers of the conference. He blogs at http://komunikacii.net/ • Dragan Varagic, one of the leading bloggers in Serbia – he’s a consultant and university professor • Zoran Ricliev, Online Editor of Utrinski Vesnik, a leading newspaper in Macedonia • Vedran Obucina, a Political Scientist at the University of Zagreb, Croatia, and an expert on Political Blogs The interviews were aired last night towards the end of BBC Radio 5 Live’s Pods and Blogs. Do have a listen, it’s interesting...
