BlogIndiana pictures and tweetboard

Several folks were taking pictures at the conference. Here are some:  BlogIndiana Day 1 Photos

During the day, a tweetboard was projected on a few screens.  If someone tweeted @blogindiana, it showed up on the board.  Much like the TwitterSpaces display in the Bloomington Informatics building lobby (though not as polished).

This provided much entertainment throughout the day.  Some people tweeted links to their blog, others tweeted about the sessions they were in.  Lots of humorous tweets.  I almost enjoyed the tweet interactions as much as the conference!

Of course, anyone can follow the tweets using any of the tweet search engines by searching on “@blogindiana”.  Several people who were not at the conference attended vicariously through others’ tweets.

The experience did make me realize that multitasking will be taken to a new level in the not-to-distant future.  Today I found myself trying to: 1) follow and participate in the tweets, 2) get to “know” the other participants and presenters by looking at their profiles and blogs, 3) pay attention to the presenters, 4) follow the links posted in tweets or at presentations, 5) have a chat conversation with my hubby and 6) take notes all at the same time.

Overall, the conference is very intriguing.  I’ve typed about 6 pages of notes so far.  But, I’m home now and am looking forward to spending the evening with my hubby.  I plan to blog later about that content.  But, for now, my geek hat has been removed.

‘Nite all.
