It’s all go in talk about local land. Last week Mike and I were in Hereford for a fun-packed workshop at Borderlines Film Festival and this week we’re off to London for the National Digital Inclusion Conference 2010.
The theme for NDI1o is ‘Digital Participation: Passing IT on’ and that’s exactly what Mike and I will be doing with an open, drop-in social media surgery table in the exhibition area of the conference. Last year I joined the We Share Stuff team, who did social media surgeries during Conference in addition to their Fringe event, which were very popular. On the second day of the conference myself and a couple of others went outside the conference venue to talk to local people about what digital inclusion meant to them, which resulted in some great vox pops films, such as Ben Whitehouse and I talking to a protester.
So if you’re at the National Digital Inclusion Conference this year and would like to talk with us about issues you think social media might be able to assist with, or get advice on any elements of social media/networking that you’re interested in, come and join us over lunchtime either tomorrow Wednesday 10th March or Thursday 11th March.
We’ll also be facilitating a barcamp-style session at 4.00pm tomorrow as part of the Digital Skills for All workstream, putting together an expert-led SWOT analysis for social media in the digital inclusion sector.
We’ll hopefully see some of you there!
