At HHL2007, I joined twitter. This was good fun and definitely a little ahead of the game. I’m now signed up for HHL2008 in October and this year they’re sending all delegates who register before 31st July a free Nintendo DS. Apparently it will come with one game and some conference material.
I wonder what else?
Last year, there were only about 25 of us following the HHL tweets, but it was still interesting and enhanced the experience of the conference by enabling you to follow the other conference strands through the “tweets” of others. Nintendos allow you to “chat” wirelessly – I suspect that this will be used spontaneously in some way by delegates, or maybe HHL will set up some kind of wifi chat room. Whatever happens, I’m sure it will be exciting and innovative.
