Thanks to everyone who came - about 40 people this time :) There's a list of everyone who submitted links here. It was a great evening, everyone talked about their blogs and blogging related practices (lots of mentions of the impact of Twitter etc). Then we had the microblogging debate which went down really well, with a ton of people joining in.
Previously, on the ALT-C2008 Edublog meetup:
Being asked about timings for those coming down especially for the meet up. My rough estimate is probably:
18.20 (conference attendees) ALT-C evening meal, Refectory
19.30 - Edubloggers meet up - drinking & chat - Leeds Student Union the Old Bar
20.15 - show & tell - round table for everyone to say something about their own blog/blogging (or if you don't blog, something about a blog you like) - props welcome, probably no wifi
20.45 - microblogging debate (if we end up having to move venue, we'll do it for the start of this)
Any comments/suggestions/ideas please add to this page or to the discussion thread
Really looking forward to our fourth ALT-C Edublogger meetup next week, taking place at Leeds Student Union Mine Bar, Tuesday 9th September, 19.30 onwards. The Alt-C evening meal (for those who are attending the conference & have signed up for it) is served in the adjacent Refectory building, and as usual will provide a handy initial meeting point for some of you. Otherwise, head over to the Mine Bar. We may be moving on somewhere else but we'll stay at the Mine Bar until at least 20.30. We've been lucky enough to have had some great special guests at previous meetups - including James Farmer, Stephen Downes, Barbara Dieu, Christopher D. Sessums and Barbara Ganley. This year's meeting promises to be as jam packed with world-class edubloggers as ever, including Scott Wilson and Graham Attwell. George Siemens will also be in town - he's speaking at ALT-C early Wednesday - and I'm looking forward to meeting up with him for the first time in 3D. As every - this is an informal, fun get together. You don't have to dress up and you don't have to be an old school edublogger to come along. Everyone who has an interest in edublogging is welcome. To co-inside with F-ALT, the first ever grass roots fringe event at ALT, which will be tackling a range of cutting edge topics in a fast, dynamic debate framework, we'll be holding the microblogging session on the night. Su White will be facilitating speakers Helen Whitehead, James Clay, Jay Cousins, Andy Powell & maybe me in a kung-fu style roundtable. Good quality heckling and any imaginative audience participation will be entirely welcome.
You don't have to be a blogger to come along, although it's probably good if you do like edublogs, at least in principal. It's a very informal event and just gives us the opportunity to identify by site some of the bloggers we read and find out about new resources. We will most likely be having a show & tell (ie five minutes to talk about your blog/blogging). Ideas and suggestions welcome - head over to this thread.
