OK so the frist day of the GTEC conference is over and the second one is getting underway.
I just checked out the GTEC blog to see if there were any posts outlining highlights from yesterday. Nothing. Last post is from Oct 5, and was a primer for one of sessions from yesterday. To keep momentum up, why not a post about what took place?
I fully understand that in the midst of putting on a big conference, it’s hard to sit down and pull together some coherent copy about the day’s highlights. There’s a lot of other stuff going on, and resources are usually stretched thin in the heat of an unfolding event. So why not take advantage of the steady stream of tweets about the event?
A quick search reveals lots and lots of relevant content in the Twittersphere.
And best part is that this can be automated. I’m thinking here about a blog post with an embeddable widget — like ScribbleLive or CoverItLive, for example — to pull in tweets about GTEC that hit the right keywords or hashtags.
While not as coherent as a well-written blog post, grabbing tweets about the event would help to show the level of action happening. Even better, it allows the blog’s readers to make connections with others who are at the event or interested in it. And having something fresh on the blog as your event is occurring is far better than nothing at all.
