Like Minds at Social Media Week London

LeSanto letweets

I’ve got a busy week ahead of me, liveblogging the Like Minds events at Social Media Week London. Above you can see the spectacular Like Minds social media hub, where Le Santo and I are hard at work; he’s busy livetweeting the events and owning the hashtag.
I’m doing the blogging on the Like Minds site, so I’ll link the posts here:

Like Minds Liveblogging Day 1 linkage

Here’s what I liveblogged yesterday:
And there’s a whole bunch of Like Minds photos on Flickr.
More liveblogging about to begin, and probably some more analytical posts a bit later on. 

Liveblogging for Like Minded Folks…

Like Minds pre-conference dinner

It’s Tuesday night, it’s late and I’m catching up on admin in a hotel room. I’m here for the Like Minds conference, which runs for the next three days. And, predictably enough, I’ll be live-blogging it. But this live-blogging will be a little bit different. I’m here as a guest of the Live Minds team, and I am the live-blogger for the conference – and that means that I’ll be liveblogging on the Like Minds blog, not here. It’s not something I’ve done before, so it should be an interesting experiment.
And that’s not the only reason it’ll be different. It’s also the first time I’ve attempted to liveblog for three days straight. I’m normally absolutely whacked after two days, so goodness only knows what state I’ll be in by Friday PM. But that’s a long time away. The pre-conference dinner (which was particularly lovely, and at a hotel with special memories for me) is over, my liveblogging kit packed, and I’m ready to hit the sack. See you tomorrow, both here and there…

Like Minds and Le Web: Liveblogging ahead

The end of the year always seems to end up as conference season for me – which is no bad thing. A good conference sends you away full of ideas and enthusiasm for the coming months, and hopefully the current crop will see me intellectually kitted up for the challenges of 2012. 

And I’m delighted to say I’ve been invited to be an official blogger for two forthcoming conferences.

Like Minds
The last few Like Minds events have been some of my most enjoyable and useful times at conferences in the last few years. The Exeter conference, which kicks off next week, has expanded to three days. Scott Gould has invited me to join the conference as an official blogger – I’ll be liveblogging sessions on the Like Minds site – so I’ll be there for all three days. 
If you can conceivably get to Exeter for those three days (19 to 21st October), I really recommend that you do. 
Le Web
LeWeb - Register Now!I can’t quite believe that this will be the sixth Le Web I’ve attended. I know many people who attended the predecessor conferences Les Blogs find that it has grown out of the range they feel comfortable with, but I think I enjoyed the 2010 Le Web at least as much as any other. I’ll be heading to Paris in December as an official blogger once more.
I don’t think there’s any other event where the European and US tech scene meet and mingle quite so much, and I’m really interested to see how the extension of the conference to three days will change how it feels. Let’s hope it’s not bedevilled by snow like it was last year, though…
