Transcript of "Linking Feral Event Data: IWMW 2009 Case Study"

  1. 1. Linking Feral Event Data: The IWMW 2009 Case Study A Slidecast for the “Linking Feral (Uncontrolled) Data” workshop at DC09 Brian Kelly UKOLN University of Bath Bath UK UKOLN is supported by: This work is licensed under a Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 2.0 licence (but note caveat) Resources bookmarked using ‘ dc-2009 ' tag http://www.ukoln.ac.uk/web-focus/events/online/dc09/ Email: [email_address] Twitter: http://twitter.com/briankelly/ Blog: http://ukwebfocus.wordpress.com/
  2. 2. IWMW 2009 <ul><li>IWMW 2009: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>UKOLN’s annual Institutional Web Management Workshop </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Set up in 1997 & held annually since </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Aimed at members of UK HE’s institutional Web Management community </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>For practitioners, not researchers </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>200 participants (& ~60 watching video) </li></ul></ul>
  3. 3. An Amplified Event <ul><li>Recent IWMW events have been ‘amplified’. Technologies : </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Live video stream of plenary speaker </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Event blog </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Video interviews </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Official live blogger </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Extensive use of Twitter </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Best Practices </li></ul><ul><ul><li>AUP </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Quiet zone (no photos, …) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Agreement from speakers </li></ul></ul>
  4. 4. The Live Blogging <ul><li>Dedicated Twitter accounts: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>iwmw : event administration (“anyone found a phone”) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>iwmwlive : live blogging of plenary talks </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Approaches: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Dedicated official blogger (posted at iwmwlive, summaries on blog & video interviews) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Tag for event, based on approaches used in previous years and for use in other services (e.g. Flickr): iwmw2009 </li></ul></ul>
  5. 5. The Approaches (1) <ul><li>Service integration: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Events tweets pulled into Coveritlive </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>(Potentially) allowed people without Twitter accounts to engage in discussions </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Provided another integration environment e.g. < http://iwmw.ukoln.ac.uk/ iwmw2009/video/ > </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Provides additional RSS feed </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Avoids “Twitter rot” </li></ul></ul>
  6. 6. The Approaches (2) <ul><li>Remote audience as first class participants: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Slides on Slideshare </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Engagement over Twitter (“can’t hear”) </li></ul></ul>Note accessibility benefits (remote audience as visually & audio-impaired)
  7. 7. The Approaches (2) <ul><li>Remote audience as first class participants: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Slides on Slideshare </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Engagement over Twitter (“can’t hear”) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Questions posed on Twitter: </li></ul></ul>
  8. 8. The Approaches (3a) <ul><li>Tagging: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>#iwmw2009 and (optional) #P n for plenary talks </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Unique (?) tags for 2 talks (#iwmwp4 and #iwmwp6) </li></ul></ul>Use of Twitter at IWMW 2009 If you wish to refer to a specific plenary talk or workshop session, we have defined a hashtag for each of the plenary talks (#p1 to #p9) and workshop session (#a1 to #a9, #b1 to #b4 and #c1 to #c5).
  9. 9. The Approaches (3b) <ul><li>What have the audience taken from the plenary talks? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>iwmwlive Twitter account asked standard question at end of plenary talks: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>“ What is the main thing you will take away from Derek's talk? #iwmw2009 #p1 ” </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>What do I take from #iwmw2009 #p1? No one's got a clue so keep your fingers crossed! </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Take-away: The Googleisation of the student mentality #p1 #iwmw2009 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>#iwmw2009 #p1 Most important thing taken away - reinforcing that modern comms are change and *not* dumbing down </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>#iwmw2009 #p1 I'll take away a brilliant metaphor for how we are reacting to the dark conditions rather than making sure we read the signs </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>#iwmw2009 #p1 Going to grapple with how to find our digital content & what to do with it. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>What do I take from #iwmw2009 #p1? No one's got a clue so keep your fingers crossed! </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>#iwmw2009 #p1 &quot;Images are the new words&quot; </li></ul></ul>
  10. 10. The Approaches (4) <ul><li>Engaging With Audience’s Thoughts </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Live speaker interaction with ‘Twitter wall’ for #P4 on “What is the Web?” (& event summary: #P9) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>#iwmwp4 tag used to avoid confusion with other sessions </li></ul></ul><ul><li>James will respond to things that are raised on the #iwmwp4 tag. Reporting of his talk will continue on #iwmw2009 #p4 as with other talks </li></ul><ul><li>Social web is important because it is about connecting people, other people and content. Not the be all and end all but still key #iwmwp4 </li></ul><ul><li>#iwmwp4 think Paul trying to say tht courses are products nd thy could (in a brave world) be rated by students (the descriptor would remain) </li></ul><ul><li>what is the web? - the web is what you access thru your web browser - but who cares and why does it help to ask the question? #iwmwp4 </li></ul><ul><li>I think nomenclature is the least of our challenges. Should move on from discussing the labels, and get to the meat! #iwmwp4 </li></ul><ul><li>do shoe makers ask &quot;what is a shoe?&quot; - #cobblers #iwmwp4 </li></ul>
  11. 11. Recording The Evidence (1) <ul><li>Twapperkeeper : </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Hashtag specified prior to event </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Tool provides HTML and RSS views of tweets (1,657 items) </li></ul></ul>
  12. 12. Recording The Evidence (2) <ul><li>WTHashtag : </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Hashtag specified prior to event </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Screenshot taken shortly after event </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Blog post on statistics published shortly after event </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Data no longer available </li></ul></ul>1,530 tweets 170 contributors 218.6 tweets per day 42.5% come from “The Top 10″ 4.4% are retweets 20.0% are mentions 34.5% have multiple hashtags
  13. 13. Recording The Evidence (3) <ul><li>Backupmytweets : </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Used for my Twitter accounts (iwmwlive & briankelly) rather than of hashtags </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Tool provides HTML, JSON & RSS views of tweets (280 items) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Data migrated to managed area </li></ul></ul>
  14. 14. Recording The Evidence (4) <ul><li>Twitterdoc : </li></ul><ul><ul><li>PDF of up to 500 tweets for event </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>File copied to managed area </li></ul></ul>
  15. 15. Recording The Evidence (5) <ul><li>The Archivist : </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Desktop client used to search for #iwmw2009 hashtag shortly after event </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Tool provides XML and CSV views of tweets (1,024 items) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Live data no longer available </li></ul></ul>
  16. 16. <ul><li>Background : </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Tweets for plenary talks (#iwmw2009 #P n ) copied to UKOLN Web site </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Links for searches for 19 parallel sessions (#iwmw2009 and #a0-9, #b1-b9 or #c1-c5) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Data no longer available </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>“ current date limit on [Twitter] search index is &quot;around 1.5 weeks but is dynamic and subject to shrink… ” Techcrunch, 11 Aug 2009 </li></ul></ul>Providing Access to Evidence
  17. 17. Reserving The Evidence <ul><li>Data (and image) of (transient) Twitter records migrated to UKOLN Web site few days after event. </li></ul><ul><li>Blog posts provides summaries. </li></ul>http://iwmw.ukoln.ac.uk/iwmw2009/twitter/
  18. 18. Why Are We Doing This? <ul><li>Why do we wish to reuse the Twitter posts? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>To allow speakers / facilitators to see comments after the session </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>To allow participants to reflect on discussions </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Potentially to enhance accessibility of videos (use iwmwlive record as caption) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>As a testbed for research (e.g. exploring how Twitter is used and how it develops) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>To advise others who use Twitter in various ways (e.g. as a formal teaching aid) </li></ul></ul>
  19. 19. The Concerns <ul><li>Don’t Do It! (keep Twitter as intended) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>It’s over-complex </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>It’s killing the spontaneity of the back channel </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>I’ll be forced to self-censor </li></ul></ul>
  20. 20. The Concerns <ul><li>Don’t Do It! (keep Twitter as intended) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>It’s over-complex </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>It’s killing the spontaneity of the back channel </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>I’ll be forced to self-censor </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Don’t Do It! (keep events as intended) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>It’s noisy, distracting and rude </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Speakers won’t be open and honest </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>It’s only for the geeky elite! </li></ul></ul>
  21. 21. The Concerns <ul><li>Don’t Do It! (keep Twitter as intended) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>It’s over-complex </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>It’s killing the spontaneity of the back channel </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>I’ll be forced to self-censor </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Don’t Do It! (keep events as intended) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>It’s noisy, distracting and rude </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Speakers won’t be open and honest </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>It’s only for the geeky elite! </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Do It (but don’t use Twitter) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Use an open source solution </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Use a distributed solution </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Use a richer solution (rooms, access management, …) </li></ul></ul>
  22. 22. Additional Complexities <ul><li>Who owns the data? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Author of tweets according to Twitter T&Cs </li></ul></ul><ul><li>The tweets have escaped! Tweets replicated in: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Misc. search engines; </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Twitter harvesting tools e.g. The Archivist </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Integration environments e.g. Coveritlive </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Blogs; Web pages; etc. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Local file store </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>… </li></ul></ul>
  23. 23. Issues <ul><li>Should we be harvesting feral event data? </li></ul><ul><li>Should we regard (public) tweets as fair game? </li></ul><ul><li>Is Twitter good enough? </li></ul><ul><li>How do we address the risks of: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Changes in T&C (and trust) for commercial services (e.g. Twitter; FriendFeed/Facebook, …) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Reliance on (unproven?) alternatives </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Migrating a community to a new environment </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Missing the ‘point’ of and differences between the tools (Twitter & FriendFeed are different – see Caemon Neylon’s post ) </li></ul></ul>
