One of my first tweeting extravaganzas was at the 2009 Science Communication Conference. Someone pointed out to me today that there were only a handful of us tweeting that conference (I had actually forgotten about my trusty old ipod touch when I started writing this!). Times have changed – someone suggested that there had been over 1000 tweets on 1 day of the conference, while I was able to assemble my own storify of the session I hosted (the slides are below).
It felt natural to see people tweeting – now I guess the challenge would be to tweet and present without feeling self-conscious about it! It gives such a rich conference experience, and lets people interact long after the final session has finished.
Here’s the presentation I gave – again, slideshare using way of making the slides available after the event.
