Right, it’s been a very long time since I’ve been here, sorry. No excuses, just been very busy, and this has had to take a back seat for a while.
I’ve decided I’m going to investigate what this social media thing is all about.
I’ve got twitter sorted @hadleypaul
Not bothering with facebook yet. Seems a bit pants to me right now. Maybe I’ll be proved wrong, or forced into it, let’s see how I develop first.
Next comes this rss feeds thing.
Then a new look for the blog, adding technology bits, widgets, plug ins etc as I go, learning all the way of course.
Yesterday I went to a conference organised by the Arts Council called http://getambition.com which was very good. Very inspired by @Documentally. Great sense of humour- knows absolutely everything about new media technology, so I’ll be learning a lot from his blog and how he does stuff, what tricks he uses, especially the technology involved and how to send immediate updates to twitter, this blog, audioboo etc. His blog is here: http://ourmaninside.com/
Mark Steadman is a true star also- he’s giving me lots of mentoring advice, and I really can’t thank him enough. Plus, he’s a Jack Daniels fan too, so that’s all good in my book. Top bloke and a real gent.
I’ve put them both on my blogroll, along with Pete Ashton. I’ll add a couple more later. So there you go, that’s the first thing learned today.
Like the majority of people I meet in this social media field, so far they seem like good souls, and willing to help where possible. Got to be careful though- not to get others to do stuff for me, got to learn how to do this myself, otherwise, what’s the point of trying?
Kit required: mac (ditch this pc ). Zoom recorder (try to get a H2, the H4 seems a bit fragile to be honest). iphone. Looks like this could be an expensive start. Time for lunch. Back soon (ish)
