Blogtalk Downunder 19 - 21 May 2005 - Emergent Conversations Sat, 21 Feb 2009 09:12:49 +0000 en hourly 1 Blog Hui 2006 - Be there!!! Wed, 23 Nov 2005 04:00:39 +0000 James Well, what with Blogtalk Reloaded being announced for Vienna in October 2006 it’s a pretty exciting time (again!) in the world of Blogging Conferences because Blog Hui: New Zealand’s First International Blogging Conference has also just been launched by the ever resourceful and ridiculously energetic Lynsey Gedye.

It looks like it’s going to be absolutely excellent with international speakers including Torill Mortensen, Trevor Romain and the one and only Mark Bernstein!

I’ll definitely be trying to get to this as well… now there’s a drawcard ;)

Here’s the call for papers (or posters!)
, in summary:

• Case studies of local experiences in implementing blogging technologies
• Blogitics - blogging as a political tool – activism online
• Blogging the arts: Web 2.0 independent music publishing, photographers, and artists
• Personal blogs and portals
• Blogging with a conscience - blogging to make a difference
• Portfolio blogging – promoting, presenting, and protecting your creativity
• Developing blog-based teaching materials, resources and techniques
• Fear and loathing in the long tail - managing your public life online
• Blog writing style
• Collaborative blogging
• Making money with your blog
• Desk top blogging – fine publishing from home
• Building your community and traffic, connecting with your tribe in the blogosphere
• Blogging on the intranet – blogging in the office
• Traditional PR, marketing and the “blogosphere”
• Theoretical and conceptual reviews, technical reviews
• Social networking tools, blogging tools, aggregation and technology: RSS, XML, podcasting and video blogging

Please, if you can, spread the word on this one… it’s kinda the natural successor to Blogtalk Downunder and is as good an excuse as any I reckon for a trip to beautiful NZ and Wellington!

Implications of culture Tue, 21 Jun 2005 10:00:19 +0000 Ash I was fascinated by Thomas Burg’s talk (and the fortuitously timed comments that matched the projectors tantrums).

Something I thought was pertinent but not mentioned was the cultural dimension. Assuming that this project was launched in Germany, a supposedly monochronic society of low context, that excels in linear, heirarchical and compartmentalised work practices - perhaps the technology wasn’t the main flaw? What if the culture just didn’t suit the concept?

As part of his theories on monochronic and low context peoples, Edward T. Hall purported that German society encourages workers to do their work and in general, “keep their head down”. They apparently favour adhering to time, and budgets over deep relationships to achieve goals in work. On the other hand, high context, polychronic societies such as the French, or certain Asian and Mediterranean areas, lean more toward relationships. The more people you know - and know well - the more you can achieve. Why wait in a line when you can call a friend?

Perhaps these polychronic societies would be a better test bed for technologyLog?

Chris Chesher’s slides for Blogs and the Return of the Author Tue, 21 Jun 2005 10:00:08 +0000 chris.chesher I’ve uploaded my slides as a PDF file.

Blue USB Stick Tue, 31 May 2005 10:45:52 +0000 James One last call to see if anyone ended up by accident with a blue USB stick… if so please get in touch to reunite it with it’s owner!

A continuation on a theme… to get rid of comments or to keep them Mon, 30 May 2005 02:24:57 +0000 James Inspired by the discussion Mark Bernstein got going at the conference abut comments I’ve just posted the first of a two-parter entitled Arguments for getting rid of comments.

The second part will be arguing the opposite… subscribe to the Blogsavvy RSS feed to pick it up.

The late blogger Fri, 27 May 2005 04:34:34 +0000 Mathieu Hi there - better late than never right? OK, I’m now officially posting some comments on the conference. I guess I’m just not a real hardcore blogger - oh well. Cheers everyone, it was nice to meet you all!

10 Things I learnt - or re-learnt from Trevor! Thu, 26 May 2005 06:42:21 +0000 ABB Trevor Cook - one of our engaging presenters and active participants has posted his list of learnings - 10 of them actually!

Missing NetComm wireless card Tue, 24 May 2005 23:47:51 +0000 ABB And just to add to Lawrence’s previous post - we are also missing a wireless NetComm card that would have given you access to the iBurst hotspot during the conference.
If you inadvertently dashed off with it (or have forgotten it’s in your laptop) - can you let me know, please…..we are responsble for returning all the equipment to iBurst and will have to re-imburse them for any missing or damaged items!
Thanks - Anne BB
