I’m giving a presentation at Carleton for my Seminar course on October 30th. Title and abstract is below – slides coming soon!
Title: Conversation 2.0: Twitter
Abstract: The advent of Web 2.0 changed the internet. It went from an information medium to a communication medium. Recent developments have made that communication increasingly real-time. Services like Facebook and Twitter have made it possible to passively monitor real-time updates on your friends, whilst Google’s recently released Wave service aims to reinvent email – and make it more real-time. These changes have had a very real effect on the way we interact – with each other, with brands, our political system, and with the press. The presentation will discuss what Twitter is and its effects. There will also be a demonstration of how we can graph users “conversation networks” and the conclusions we can draw from them.
