Back in the large auditorium after a lunch that was picked apart by 300 people (all the salsa and guacamole were gone by the time we got there).
Alan Lavine is presenting “50 Web 2.0 Ways to Tell a Story“. He’s listing off some tools he uses, starting off with Slideshare.net (which is like Powerpoint meets YouTube) and this is based on a presentation he gave in Australia a while back (which is available here).
Following along the lines of storytelling, Alan has an amusing “what not to do” up on his presentation site (above).
Side note: the woman in front of me is liveblogging using CoverItLive. Thinking back I’m not certain I’d use it again for a conference or meetup since I do enjoy the link love, sending people places to find more information etc. HOWEVER, I would totally use it if I did another concert liveblog like the Matthew Good living room show (Vegas or Vancouver) because it creates a great interaction with the readers.
Next media tool Alan presents is Blabberize. The idea is that you can upload a photo, select the mouth, upload audio then when you press play, the mouth animates (opens and clothes) to the beat of the audio. Quite amusing.
