Jax Session on Blogging

I attended the JAX session on using social software in companies. It was refreshing to hear a good description of what blogging is all about, other than the usual negative “Tagebücher” reports. Matthew provided a very balanced and informed presentation on weblogs and wikis and their use in a corporate context (I hope the JAX organisers will be providing access to the slides).

  1. yet again…I think developers here and developers, uh, across the big lake and the canal are quite a difference.
    makes me think of keeping my eyes open for the next local blogger conference and see to get myself into there somehow…

  2. i was late for the session. That’s why there were no hands 😉
    I would have thought that developers are more active on the blogger front.

    There’s going to be a DVD with all slides and examples…

  3. p.b. I suggest I bring my laptop tomorrow morning and we’ll have a blogger Arbeitsfruehstueck. Heh. Forget the castle. Forget the scenery. 😉

  4. finally. maybe if you convince them that the slides are an essential contribution to a better understanding of “blogging”, they’ll be kind enough to release them.
    By the way, I thought this quote of Matthew’s

    “Before I started I asked for a show of hands on who was already writing a weblog and none of the roughly 20 attendees showed a hand. This shows how these things are far from commonplace here in Germany – ”

    shows pretty clearly that there is yet a lot to be done.
