At the Wednesday opening reception for the NMC 2006 regional conference, we not only had great food and drink, but 8 different demos related to “What the 2.0 Are We Talking About? New Web Demos”, where colleagues I arm twisted gave informal hands on demos to anyone who wandered by.
It was rather energetic the whole time, and thanks go to:
- 2.0 of Flickr by Tom Hapgood, University of Arkansas)
- 2.0 of Geotagging by Cyprien Lomas, University of British Columbia
- 2.0 of del.icio.us by Brian Lamb, University of British Columbia
- 2.0 of Web Video by Shelley Rodrigo, Mesa Community College
- 2.0 of Google Docs by Michael Roy, Wesleyan University / Academic Commons
- 2.0 of Odeo by Gardner Campbell, University of Richmond
- 2.0 of Gliffy by Bryan Alexander, NITLE
- 2.0 of Vyew – by Alan Levine, NMC
In addition we had a great warm up activity, thanks to NMC colleague Rachel Smith, in which participants did “people tagging”— they had to pick 3 “tags” to describe themselves, and then find at least 5 people who could sign their slip of paper who had the same tag, all tossed into the bin for some Adobe provided prizes. The room went crazy, and forgot mostly about the web demos.
