My Twitter Presentation – Part of the BIGWIG Social Software Showcase



(update – the BIGWIG sites seem to be down, but there are updated links to both twitter presentations. Enjoy!)

I was asked to participate in the first ever BIGWIG Social Software Showcase “unconference.” (site seems to be down). What is the Showcase, you ask? From the LITA blog: “LITA BIGWIG (Blogs, Wikis, and Social Software IG) is pleased to present the first ever online, unconference at ALA Annual 2007. The Social Software Showcase will be occuring around and during Annual. We have gathered eleven librarians and leaders in the field to present on cutting edge technology and social software. Regardless of where you are in the world, you will have the opportunity to view and discuss the presentations on the official Social Software Showcase Wiki.”

For my part, I added a screencast about Twitter add-ons, meant to be a part 2 to David Free’s Twitter, Part One (updated links to each presentation).

So – go read about the Showcase, watch/listen/read all the presentations as they get added to the Showcase wiki, and participate!

    Yep, I’ve had a couple of unavoidable delays but Part 1 (Intro to Twitter) should be up by Tuesday 6/12.

    David, nifty.

    I created a Twitter service, Twitterprose, and have done the whole Rube Goldberg business of creating a blog, adding a feedburner widget, setting up a feedburner feed, getting an openID, registering with Twitterfeed, and am now breathlessly awaiting the whole thing to, you know, work. I think this is good territory for librarians to move into, but it did require a lot of duct tape, and I’m not sure it’s working yet.

    Anyway, Twitter is pretty good stuff… it may be so 20 minutes ago next year, but services that people are using now are where we need to be.

    Oh, and question for you: for Twitterprose (or any other notification service created for Twitter), is it good behavior/etiquette to reciprocate the Friends requests? I can’t wrap my brain around that…

    Hmm… friends requests… I’d say it depends on the goal of the product. Does being friends back help twitterprose any? If so, then yes. If not, I’m not sure it’s needed (well, other than popularity tracking perhaps?).
