  • A First-Timer Glows With Orange, Rose and Deep Purple-Blue Satisfaction

    Guest Post: Dan Brady

    This is another in a series of blog entries being posted from the Communications Network Annual Conference in Los Angeles.

    When I landed in LA, I met an old friend for lunch who told me that I should take particular care to watch the sunsets during my time on the West Coast. He described the way the sun lowered itself from the sky and lit up pockets of clouds here, then another group over there, then another, until the entire sky flooded with orange then faded to rose, then a deep purple-blue.

    From the Social Media Toolbag: ComNet010 On Twitter

    This is another in a series of blog entries being posted from the Communications Network Annual Conference in Los Angeles.

    When the Twitter hashtag for the Fall 2010 Communications Network / CommA Conference was announced a few weeks ago, I set up the ComNet010 hashtag on What the Hashtag?!

It also provides some statistics on the extent of the Twitter conversation.

    I’m buzzing, and it’s not the coffee. It’s Friday morning, 9:30, and my head is straining to hold onto the insights, questions and anxieties shared in just the last 90 minutes of this two-day conference.

  • Some Questions About Diversity and Crowdsourcing

    Guest Post: Adin Miller

    This is another in a series of blog entries being posted live from the Communications Network Annual Conference in Los Angeles.

    The Fall 2010 Communications Network  / CommA Conference (ComNet010) began with a presentation by James Surowiecki, author of the Balance Sheet column for the New Yorker and the book The Wisdom of Crowds, on finding better answer and solutions through a focused efforts to engage group intelligence. The session was an excellent way to engage the audience – mostly communication personnel in philanthropic institutions – in an in-person and Twitter discussion about the potential power of using crowds to inform decision making and organizational vision. It also raised a lot of questions.
