ecoCamp at World

Posted: 13 Oct 2008 05:57 AM CDT

All the discussions of ecoCampLondon will be collected in a document
called ecoCamp at World.

When we run ecoCamp in Italy we did it by asking the promoter of the
session to fill in a template summarizing the conclusions.

As we are a BarCamp and we want to give a Web 2.0 flavour to the event
we decided to use Twitter to do that.

We will use LiveTwitting.com

How does it work?

- Every attendee needs to follow either @livetwitting or @livet
- There are very simple commands to learn

To start livetwitting d livetwitting ON Name or ID of Conference # Session Title

Example: d livetwitting ON BlogWorld 2008 # Keynote
Example: d livetwitting ON 25 # Keynote

To record your notes Just type away! Every status update will be
recorded until you turn it off.
You can send direct messages (d livetwitting your notes) if you don't want
to share your livetwitting with your followers.
To mark a segment with a Topic name (optional) d livetwitting TOPIC
Name of Topic
To mark a speaker (optional) d livetwitting SPEAKER Speaker's Name
To mark a Question & Answer segment (optional) d livetwitting QA
To pause recording (i.e. to say hi to someone else) d livetwitting PAUSE
To resume recording (after a pause command) d livetwitting RESUME
To end livetwitting d livetwitting OFF

We will give a Twitter name to each session so it will be very easy
for you to tag it appropriately.

If you already use twitter during events this will be very easy for
you. If not start exploring it right now and get ready for the event.
We are here, so shout if you are not sure about how to use it.
