It looks like there is going to be a good social reporting team at IGF2010 this year!
Are you planning on doing some social reporting work? What are you planning? What do we need to organise and co-ordinate.
- Starting to prepare a 'social reporters training' - which is likely to take place just after the 'remote participation moderators' training organised in partnership with Diplo on the day before IGF starts.
- Thinking about Hash-Tags - if we can agree a 'tag' for each workshop / session then it will make it a lot easier to bring together different bits of social reporting around the sessions - and to see how it could contribute to the formal reporting process! (You can see my experiments with aggregation from last year year here and my quick attempt at creating unique tags for each session here)
- Wondering if we can get a 'how to be a social reporter' guide of some sort into delegate packs - particularly to encourage people to tag content in useful ways. (Maybe we could even get 'suggested tags' published against the official programme? How could that happen?).
Should could social reporting become a core part of the IGF process? How can it promote inclusive participation rather than adding more 'noise' to an already noisy event? What have you got planned for your social reporting at IGF - and how can we all help each other to make it work well...
