event amplification Tag

This is part of a series of blog posts about event amplification. See this introductory blog post and the event amplification tag for other relevant blog posts. Following event amplification I've discovered and followed a number of events through Twitter (usually through one of the people I follow mentioning an event) and online. I think Twitter is the most commonly used way to follow at the moment, although it's great to see more and more events being livestreamed either by audio or video, or incorporating a group chat feature for online followers. I've shared below some of the things I have learnt from following...

Supporting amplification (as an organiser) As Marketing Officer for CILIP West Midlands, I've organised events and want to encourage people to share their experiences to widen the reach of the event. For a recent CILIP West Midlands event (The Library Debate) we had a member of the branch tweeting on behalf of the branch account @CILIPWM, and we hope to do this again in our upcoming hustings event. Here are some of the things I've learnt to...

[picappgallerysingle id="231085"]I started this blog post in a conference break at the JISC Future of Research conference. I wasn't actually at the conference (it was held in London); I was in my office in Birmingham following along using various event amplification tools. I hadn't come across the term event amplification (i.e. amplifying the event beyond the physical location, for example by using livestreaming or Twitter) until quite recently, through Brian Kelly's blog and a subsequent discussion I had with him. However, I have been involved in event amplification in a number of different ways before. Event amplification (although I didn't term it as that) has been an important consideration of mine both as an attendee, an organiser, and a remote participant.

Thankfully, the organising committee agreed and I was appointed the grand title of “Twitter Officer” (despite what some people thought, this was only my title for the conference and not for my paid job!). The Twitter hashtag A hashtag of #npc2010 was agreed early on in the conference planning, and a TwapperKeeper archive was set up by Ned...
