Lets Write 100 Conference Sessions WE Want to Attend

VON Keynote Conference season is almost upon me in full swing. My own company’s IT events are ready to launch. Jeff Pulver is building Video on the Net a new way for May. I just got back from PodCamp Toronto 2. And I’m so jazzed to be going to South by Southwest for the first time this year.

But what I want to do is this: I want US to write 100 sessions for conferences that we WISH we were attending. Write a title and a short paragraph for a session that you think would be cool to attend. It can be a keynote. It can be a panel. It can be interactive. Whatever you want. I’ll add a few, too.

Ready? Go!

    What a sideways organisation really means

    We all know that we’ve moved from hierarchical to networked, from proprietary to open, from vertical to horizontal. But have we really?

    The power remains in the PowerPoint. And until we dismantle something, it’s going to stay that way. It’s not about social media or the underlying technology, it’s about community. Community within the enterprise, community beyond the enterprise.

    So what is it that we have to dismantle? And will we ever? Does anyone care?

    Comic-com meets Sundance.

    The opportunity to view, educate, and create content for comics. Somewhat done, but there needs to be longer sessions between the professionals and the pro-sumer.

    Social Media is for Everyone

    Social media is not the domain of just PR, marketing, communications, technology and library sectors. It is about the average person making their own content. So often these industries see it as solely their own domain, and as a result tend to only talk amongst themselves, looking to each other for new ideas. It is time to look beyond the blinders and see what other people are doing with the new technologies.

    So why are we still blogging and what should we be using?

    There are so many options out there nowadays — whether it be Twitter, Utterz, “old” standbys like Blogger and WordPress or your status line on social networks. There’s even a resurgence of using IM services.

    What do you want to accomplish and what do you need to do. That’s the heart of the presentation. It sounds a lot simpler to figure out than it really is…

    I think a good basic primer on copyright – when it’s okay and not okay to use something, getting permission from an author/composer/performer/etc and what the upsides/downsides to something like Creative Commons are.
