Workshop: How To Use Web 2.0 Tools

charade #16 answer Originally uploaded by ndrwfgg (Note: If you are one of my really geeky friends, you can probably click away, but you’re friends might be interested.) Recently I did a workshop for Government people who wanted to know the basics about web 2.0 applications (blogs, micro, wiki’s, etc). It was good fun and there was lots of interest. Some of the attendees said that they’d try and have a go at using the tools, but were still a bit unsure. So with the Slattery IT group, I’ve put together a workshop on how to use the various web 2.0 applications and tools. A small group of 5-10 people, in a nice, friendly computer classroom. We’ll slowly walk through all the applications and give you a real, hands on experience. You’ll setup and use; * A blog. * A wiki. * Twitter for micro blogging. * LinkedIn for business networking. * Facebook for social networking and it’s “advanced” features. * Forums. * Photo sharing. You might want to do this because: * You want to see what the fuss is about. * You need to use the tools at work. * You want to use the tools at home. * You need to recruit Generation Y people. If you’re […]

How to Safely Play with Web 2.0

test tube flowers Originally uploaded by cyancey I did a presentation this morning to a great bunch of marketing and media people in Australian Government organisations. One of their biggest challenges is that they want to do more web 2.0 stuff, but the legal eagles won’t let them try and the IT guys won’t help them try. So we came up with the idea of playing with password protected tools and then showing the naysayers how we are using it. So here is a list of free applications that you can sign up to and play with in password protected, invite only way. 1. Blogging Where you write stuff and people make comments about it. Try WordPress.com Uncheck the tick box on the second page that says “Privacy” 2. Wiki Webpages that lots of people can add to and change. Try Wetpaint Change “Who can view your wiki” to private. 3. Micromedia Sending little short messages about thinks you’re doing and stuff you’ve found to your friends. Try Twitter Then add me as a friend by going here and clicking ‘Follow’ I’ll follow you back. 4. Forums Where anyone can create a new topic around a subject and everyone talks about it. Try Tangler (of course) Click ‘Private’ under group […]

Blogs are Conferences, Forums are Barcamps

Conference Lighting – Vodafone 005 Originally uploaded by On Stage Lighting NOTE: This is a semi-blatant plug of Tangler who I work for. But it’s still true. Blogging is great. I love it. I’m doing it right now. It’s me having a thought or theory and putting it down on paper for the world to see. You take your time, collect your thoughts (sometimes) and you PUBLISH it. It’s done. It’s finished. Then there is blog commenting, where the world gets to tell you what they thought of your thoughts. “Nice.” “LOL”. “You suck”. But it’s a conference. It has it’s place, but it’s dated. At conferences, one guy gets up since he knows it all and tells the 1,000 people who paid to see him what he wants to say (usually not much). He prepares it, puts it up on the screen and tells his story. When he’s done he opens it up for questions. Audience members get to stand near the mic and ask occasionally insightful questions.* Barcamps, or open-event conferences like it, are different. There is no one speaker, no schedule and really, no audience. We are all in this together. Anyone can choose the topic, anyone can respond at any time and if you don’t like […]
