First of my three seminars imparted at the he Rich-Media Webcasting Technologies for Science Dissemination Workshop, organized by the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics Science Dissemination Unit.
- Introduction to the Web 2.0, stressing the fact that
the web is the platform, that putting up content to the web has been made quite easy — caveat: provided you have access to a computer and good bandwidth —, the power of RSS, the challenge of filtering and content quality.
- Conferences are one dimensional: content delivered at one time and one place
- Conferences should shift from information exchange to knowledge exchange
- Before conferences: data and information sharing through websites, blogs, social networks
- During conferences: knowledge sharing through instant messaging, browsing, blogging and nanoblogging, social bookmarking, shared list of resources/bibliographies, multimedia files, presentations, paper repositories, etc.
- During conferences: interaction fostered by wikis, blogging (comments)
- After conferences: strengthening the network using social software, blogrolls, keeping the track of conference “official” tags, feedreading, etc.
- Opennes, a must
- Going digital, or how to create huge (infinite?) economies of scale
- The web is the platform, the way to overcome space (and time) barriers
- Link, link, link, or how to contribute to reputation and filtering
