In a belated post I had the opportunity to attend this one off conference on the 12th of October. Organised by the CIPR Education & Skills Group this was a one day event looking at the strategic use of new media in Marketing, Communications and PR in Education.
The @media podcasts are now available on the @media 2006 website or subscribe to the feed. It looks like they are adding a new session each week. I’m finally looking forward to catching all the sessions I couldn’t go to the first time around.
I’ve got to admit that the Beta 2 version of IE7 I’ve been testing at work is impressing me and I was further sold after attending Chris Wilson‘s talk about IE7 at @media 2006. It was at this session I first came across the the term open search and I really like the idea..
Well my first web conference was most enjoyable… here is a brief round-up of my highlights…
Eric Meyer‘s Keynote presentation was an enjoyable journey through the last ten years showing how CSS and standards have developed and as a relatively recent convert to CSS layout (20 months down and counting) it was good to get a history lesson to kick things off.
Well I’ve finally got around to writing a blog. As you can see we’re currently running on the good old wordpress default template… but I have always said that content was more important than style (cough!)… but no really, good things shall come of this and I thought that it might actually be nice to document in the blog how I designed the blog as we go along.
