There’s a great post on ProfHacker by guest blogger, Katy M.: Using Twitter and QR Codes at Conferences. I wouldn’t call myself anything close to a pro at conference tweeting. Novice. Barely. But I like the extended network tweeting provides. I get brief updates on sessions I can’t attend – the trick is trying not to let those distract me while I’m sitting in another session!
I like the idea of the backchannel that Katy describes, getting involved in networking with colleagues before the conference begins.
So NASIG & UKSG friends & librarian colleagues everywhere, what conversations can we have before I hit the road to St. Louis? #nasig11.
