  15. Purposely collaborative model – 'on-the-fly', 'real-time' blogging     Professional development and virtual participation Tried different blogging software (b2evolution, Blogger, Sys9, Tiki-wiki ...)‏ Settled on WordPress (for the moment - plug-ins)‏ Core 'krew' of contributors – welcome others In practice, usually 2-3 main contributors per event Blogs panel – Medicine 2.0
  16. text-to-speech -> podcast Plug-ins: Asides (like Twitter)‏ Spam-karma Photos: within posts Picasa ClustrMap Feedjit Blogs panel – Medicine 2.0
  17. Live blogging Twitter-like Multiple contributors Add others 'on the fly' Replayable archive Blogs panel – Medicine 2.0

  20. Blogs for virtual conference participation What we had hoped for: - lots of people wanting to post items - lots of comments - lots of readers - demonstration of the collaborative model working. Blogs panel – Medicine 2.0
  21. Blogs for virtual conference participation What we found: - many promised but few delivered - the principal providers were the main bloggers - interaction is lower than hoped for - reminders to people help in readership levels. Blogs panel – Medicine 2.0
  22. Blogs, interaction and participation – some evaluation data and lessons learned Generally felt to be a useful adjunct to events Most felt it was easy to use Should be available post-event (archive)‏ Must be easy to access and participate - eg wireless – or people won't post during the event Reminders boost readership RSS feeds to email/browser Blogs panel – Medicine 2.0
  23. Conference blogs - on-the-fly reportage or analysis? - time and collaboration elements make it different from much other blogging - we believe it is worth doing, and valuable to those who read and contribute Blogs panel – Medicine 2.0
