I've been thinking alot about liveblogging at conferences and Collaborative Models for Capturing and Sharing Conference Notes at Nonprofit Events (as well as here) Many of brilliant colleagues amplified my thinking outloud by adding some great insights of their own, including Nancy White, Chris Brogan, John Smith, Bev Traynor, Rob Cottingham, David Wilcox, and Amy Gahran. (Did I forget anyone?)
Today, over at Netsquared I summarized some of the live blog posts coming from the Web of Change Conference. I did some searches on the conference tag, woc2006 and noticed that the tag is the same for the World Orienteering Championship.
It made me think that you have to think a little about choosing an event tag.
-It should be unique, unless for some reason you want to integrate or connect with another tag stream. I still keep thinking about one of the comments that someone made me to during the workshop I did with Kaliya Hamlin on Web2.0 tools at NCDD. "How can you use a tag to enter into a dialogue with a group or community that has a different view or opinion on the issue? It seems like a tag can create a silo."
-It should be something that dyslexics or fast typists won't screw up! Maybe this is my unique issue, but tags that have - or _ for example.
