dot conf at NCI

Wednesday, July 21st, 2010

Tomorrow I’ll attend the dot conf  at the National College of Ireland, in the middle of Dublin’s IFSC. It happens to be the college where I did my MSc by Research - it’s always nice to go back and say hello to everybody .

The first remarkable thing definitely is their promotional video. I love it! It’s definitely worth seeing.

Then their line up of speakers sounds very promising; I’ll comment on some of the talks I attend.

I really like their approach to get people involved with the so-called Deep Dives (I signed up for two of them) and a raffle for those people signing up to a Linkedin group.

Communication among attendees before the event is encouraged with more activities in the Linkedin group,  I can’t remember what you can win, but I thought the timing was excellent.

I’m curious to see if this takes some of the speechlessness out of the coffee breaks - unless you know everybody, it can be a bit awkward. I’m sure you know what I mean…

I’m really looking forward to it - see you there?

I talked to someone, who is just starting to discover the internet. And of course we started talking about all these nice “things” to store pictures, talk to people, etc.. But where do you find that? So here is a list to get you started - not only on the internet, but right in the middle of shiny, new web 2.0 world! (more…)
