BarCamp Nashville 2 – Microblogging: Fast, Fast, Good, Good

BarCamp Nashville Time sure flies when you’re working, blogging, podcasting and parenting. It seems like just a few days ago when a small group of us met at a restaurant in Brentwood to talk about plans for BarCamp Nashville 2. This year Marcus, Kelly and I decided to pass the torch to some new and old friends to take over organizing the big event.

I’ve had the pleasure of sitting in on a few of the planning meetings this year, I must say you’re in good hands. This is going to be one heck of a fun day that no one in Nashville should miss.

If you have any interest in technology, I highly recommend you plan to attend BarCamp Nashville 2 at the Sommet Center on October 18 from 9 – 4. Did I mention it’s free?

My session is called Microblogging: Fast, Fast, Good, Good. I plan to use some stories on the speed and efficiency of microblogs such as Twitter, followed by some examples of how we can use microblogging for good.

Do you have any examples of how Twitter is fast or good? I’d love to hear your stories.

  • Twitter has helped our company baby-step into blogging. We're getting ready to launch a new website that includes a blog. Our boss had us practice blogging with Twitter first. Everyone has an account and is encouraged to post at least 3x per day.

    This approach has been really helpful to me. On Twitter I can start a seed of an idea, then when I want to write a longer blog I can look back at my posts and see what's peaked my interest lately. It's also helped cut down my fear of blogging. Putting my ideas out there, even in micro form, has helped me see that it's not such a big, bad scary thing.

    I also like Twitter's ability to update my Facebook status. I can kill two birds with one stone there. It's funny, though, my non-Twitter friends think I'm on Facebook all the time. I'm not sure if that's good or bad??? My friends seem to like it, though. They feel very up-to-date on me. I guess that proves its social function.

  • Hi Angie:
    Thanks for sharing this. It's really great to see more companies using
    Twitter. I like the approach of using it as an introduction to blogging.
    It's funny, because it's the opposite of how many geeks feel about it. More
    and more bloggers are finding themselves Tweeting more than posting to their
    blogs, some of actually given up on blogging altogether.

    I'm sticking with blogging, but I do love microblogging as well.

    The Facebook posting is funny too, because I often have friends respond to
    my status updates, not realizing that it's actually a tweet. LOL.

    Don't feel too badly about being on Facebook all of the time. The average
    user logs in 3-4 and spends 20 minutes on Facebook a day!

    Thanks so much for your comment.
