On 25 April and for the first time, I went to the London Social Media Camp which took place at the amazing Wallacespace St Pancras in London.
The aim of the event, extremely well organised by @Vero, was to gather 100-120 people to exchange ideas on social media, from social networking platforms, blogs and podcasts to using new media cleverly, marketing ethically and identity the age of technology…
As a newbie rather than a super media geek, I was encouraged to attend as it was specified the Camp was for everyone from super media geeks to newbies, from developers & designers to marketers & artists.
Originally scheduled for last a week-end, the lack of sponsors made the event finally took place on Saturday only.
It was a typical BarCamp, where everyone was welcome to present on a topic of its choice.
I had a great time there, everybody was lovely, the atmosphere was very friendly and I attended excellent talks!
I learned a lot throughout the day and I really look forward to the next Camp!!!
While the whole event was FANTASTIC, I cannot help saying that it’s a pity some people who booked finally didn’t come while so many people would have loved a ticket…

    Sounds fasinating, Julie!

    This weekend, I attended a conference on Sustainability in Translation and some of the presentations also dealt with the topic of social media.

    The highlight of the event was a presentation by an Irish translator Sarah Dillon, who communicated live from Brisbane via video. She was explaining the advantages of sites such as LinkedIn and Twitter to enhance one’s career. Although not invaluable in my opinion, some of their features do have their merits nonetheless. For example, simply listening to Tweet conversations can give you an insight into language shifts.

    Anyhow, here is the link to Sarah’s website just in case you want to take a peek:
