Suffering from typing fatigue – today I’ve blogged, wikied, IMed and actually talked and listened. Part of the point of today was to look at all these technologies and their use, and I feel like I’ve given them a pretty good workout.
I remain to be convinced that wikis will take off. It seems to me that most of the use of wikis today could have been much better served by blogs and Instant Messaging. In terms of interacting with the conference, the using of IM was the newest to me, and also I think the most useful – although it was a shame their were only a handful of people using the chatrooms (although their were obviously technological problems – perhaps proof that this isn’t ready for the real world yet)
Although I’ve also been blogging this, it was nice to be able to discuss what the presenters were saying as they said it. Also to ask questions – which others are able to answer. Given a choice, I’d have preferred to concentrate on IM, and then use transcripts for the basis of a published report afterwards.
