Blog Hui 2006 - Be there!!!

Filed under: General — James @ 3:00 pm

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!

  1. Hello James
    Thanks very much for the promotion. There’s a couple of little updates that I’m pretty chuffed about and I wanted to share - first, there’s now few - well, lots, actually of badges and buttons available on the (a href=”http://bloghui.org”>bloghui.org site, along with a nugget of html - please feel free to take a badge or two for loading into web pages. I just about want to run a competition for the strange places these buttons are finding themselves at - today’s fave is on a site written entirely in cyrillic - russian. It’s slightly strange seeing familiar sights of Wellington, my humble photos and designs, in strange surroundings, but it’s a good feeling too.

    The second little update is we’ve added a new category for submissions - we’ve had papers (academic) and posters (works in progress, academic slant, but hopefully visually interesting as well). We’ve now added a third category - praxis - for people who aren’t academics, but who’ve charged out, ignored academia and just got on with creating huge and interesting blog sites. We’re in discussion with a couple who’ve got just the most impressive blogs - I’ve really got my fingers crossed we can have them address us.

    So, in summary, again, thank you for the promotion - means a lot to us given we’re running on a voluntary basis. Please do look at writing papers, posters, and praxis. We’re restricting the numbers attending the hui so we’ve really got a chance to reach out and talk to each other, in person, instead of over the net. Please join us.
