Some blogging elsewhere
I wrote a thing on Medium.com about some hashtags and bloggers getting themselves heard. It has fun visualizations of Twitter conversations and who’s speaking to whom.
Internet Week Europe 7-11 November
Internet Week Europe is about to kick off for its second year of workshops, presentations and seminars. Held around central London, mainly in Covent Garden, Soho and Clerkenwell, the focus will be on marketing, digital media, PR, and creative uses of the internet in business. There’s a broad range of events and exhibits, many of which are free or low-cost. The full pass that gets you into the Internet Week HQ at The Hospital Club is £36 with discount.
You can follow @intertnetweek on Twitter, or use the #IWE hashtag.
Our Media Work seminar group visited TechHub in Old Street this week. After a tour of the shared work area, the co-founders Elizabeth Varley and Mike Butcher very generously spent some time with us answering our questions about what they’ve been doing and what their plans are for the development of TechHub as a space for innovative technology startups to launch from.
They both reminded us that TechHub hosts events (see their Eventbrite page) and is easy to keep up with via the the @TechHub Twitter feed.
