I met Eoin Kennedy at the Realex Fire Irish Web Awards and he told me all about CongRegation – the social media unconference he’s organising in Cong, Co. Mayo on 30 November. “You can’t get tickets for this”, he warned. “You have to blog your way in.”
Sounds like a novel approach. The basic idea of the unconference, he says, is that the participants have as much to teach each other as any designated “speaker” could. But even an unconference needs a little planning, and they ran into “an algorithm problem” trying to figure out all the details of who would speak when and where.
Luckily, as Eoin explains it, John Breslin of DERI came up with a spreadsheet which saved the day!
Thanks Conn for the chance to talk about the unconference and well done on a really nice edit. Would love to hear from people who have a social media story to tell on the day.
Thanks Eoin! Good luck with the event!
Just rereading my comment. I meant to say my intro to Congregation was the bumpy part. Must have been star struck
All bumps smoothed out! 🙂 Hope to see you in Cong!
Great video Conn and Eoin.
Best with it at the Congregation gig.
Thanks Peter! 🙂 Are you going to be there?
unfortunately I can’t.
Fortunately, I have a family gig I must attend.
I will miss you both.
Would have been good to catch up with ye.
hope all is groovy
