I lived microblogged my second event today, the goodbye too Roel van Duijn. It was quite fun, and I was getting some interesting looks from people as I was typing my commentary into my BlackBerry. I wasn’t entirely satisfied with the ease. Both of the events I used Ping.FM, the first using GTalk, which was easy, and the second using Ping.FM Mobile, which is terrible together with the BlackBerry browser.
Firstly I learned I should have read the following two articles, which contain handy tips:
I really should have prepared before I went, I didn’t know the names of all the guests and didn’t know the schedule. I was slightly late, and as I didn’t know I was going I didn’t really have time to prepare. I really should have used HashTags, I did think about it, but it was all going fast enough that the fleeting thought was discarded.
So I’ll know for next time to:
- Do come prepared
- Do know who is speaking
- Do use an easy to use tool
- Do use hashtags
- Do take pictures
- Don’t forget the names of the speakers
- Don’t attract too much attention
- Don’t arrive late
I’ll update this list and repost with anything which pops into my mind, and naturally comments are welcome.
