I’m at Our Social World, an interesting conference about blogging and other forms of social networking which also is conveniently within cycling distance of my home.
We were all encouraged to bring laptops and we’re all, of course, being very ‘social’ – IMing each other, posting entries like this, and so forth. It’s bizarre to see posts popping up in my RSS feeds from people just the other side of the room. It’s fun, if you’re at a conference, to type its name in quotes into Technorati. The challenge here is to get the balance between being electronically social and just chatting to the person next to you.
