When worlds collide – tagging in meat space
April 4, 2008 § Leave a comment
Only Jeff Pulver would fly around the world hosting “Social Media Breakfasts” and thank goodness! This was a great event, lots of fun. I don’t know if the concept is Jeff’s originally, but he has been going from city to city on a mission to bring social computing techniques to real-world networking. Using the web 2.0 metaphor of tagging and Facebook “Walls” you have a great icebreaker for starting conversations and learning more about the person you just shook hands with. The photo above is my personal tag cloud from about halfway through the event.
You need to be on Facebook to rsvp, but if Jeff brings one of these events to your town, definitely check it out. If not, host your own and send me an invite!
