I Get Web 2.0ed With a Little Help From My Friends

It’s the day before I board the Big Old Jet Airliner to the NMC Summer Conference and I am piling on the Web 2.0 Tagging goodness, or zaniness. This recap is as much to document as to thanks those I lean on. Last year, at the 2006 Summer conference in Cleveland, being my first one in the fold of NMC employment, I rolled out a Tag This Conference page, mixing up del.icio.us, flickr, and hopefully technorati content all tagged with nmc2006, the page doing so with some help from a local version of feed2js. Repeated this tagging for the 2006 Regional Conference in San Antonio. So without too much extension, the Web 1.0ish page is up for next week’s conference spiffed up a bit by bringing it also up as a Tumblog, which presents the feeds from the same 3 sources a bit more stylishly.

I leave in a few days for the 2007 NMC Summer Conference in Indianapolis. This is actually a minor test of blogging into the wind to see if Technorati picks up the conference tag of nmc2007 (I still am never 100% sure if it will pick up tagged blog posts). But yay! it looks like the simple WP plugin I used, then broke, Bunny’s Technorati Tags, is functional in WordPress 2.x — I like its simplicity of just tagging when I feel like it; my categories are not all that coherent to warrant an Ultimate Tag Warrior approach (call me a tag wimp rather than warrior). So for those bloggers, flickerites, and del.icio.us markers, remember to tag a whole boat load of stuff with nmc2007. I have the duct tape and bailing wire Tag This Conference page set up to receive tagged stuff, and am also testing a tumblr site […]
