WebVisions 2008: Rounding up the posts
Well, another WebVisions is in the books. And given that I wasn’t able to attend, I’ve been really happy to see a ton of write-ups on the event.
I can’t keep all this goodness to myself, so I thought I’d provide a round-up on all the comments and posts I’ve found.
- Slides from WebVisions 2008 (Thanks to Jason Grigsby, whose slideshow from WebVisions was selected as the Slideshare “Slideshow of the Day,” for the tip)
- Twitter stream from WebVisions attendees
- Flickr photos tagged “WebVisions”
- WebVisions 2008 was awesome
“I’ve spent yesterday and today at the WebVisions 2008 conference, at the Oregon Convention Center in downtown Portland. I was asked to speak on a panel about Open Source and Open Content with Ward Cunningham (most famous for inventing the wiki), Deb Bryant (OSU Open Source Lab), and Bryan Jamison (Open Sourcery).”
- WebVisions stands up there with the big guys
“In terms of content, Webvisions stands up there with big time events like SXSW.”
- WebVisions 2008 wrap up
“This Webvisions 2008 was the best yet. I can’t believe I’m feeling this way but I can hardly wait ’til next years Webvisions 2009.”
- WebVisions wrap-up
“All in all, WV was pretty good, though it didn’t feel as inspiring as the last couple of years. After last year, I made sure to avoid the workshops. As far as the sessions go, I was entertained and picked up some great info and good tips to follow-up on, but nothing that made me want to carve out a day or so to really think through.”
- WebVisions, the unkeynote, and is print dead?
“Back from Portland, OR and presenting the Day 1 Keynote there. Learned a great bit of stuff in various sessions, and met a bunch of cool people. More to come on that both here and over at my FastCompany.com blog, ‘Digital Media Diva.’”
- Thoughts on Lynne d Johnson’s UnKeynote
“I wanted to talk briefly about Lynne d Johnson’s UnKeynote from Thursday and why it prompted me to modify my presentation to add a new slide.”
- I’m ready for Preso 2.0
“One really interesting thing I noticed, at least from an enterprise perspective, reinforces what I saw at Web 2.0 Expo. Presentations from Web 2.0 people totally rock.”
- WebVisions 2008 provides technical and political discussion
“This year’s event, held May 22-23, 2008 at Portland Convention Center, was true to form with at least one exception; the presentation by Jensine Larsen, A River Runs Through The Digital Divide: Women Using Global Communications Technology to Shift the Balance of Power.“
- Star Wars Kid: The data dump
“Be warned, this is more detail than you’ll ever want about the origins of the Star Wars Kid meme and how it spread. You don’t care about this level of detail, but I’m writing this all down so that I never have to think about it again.”
- WebVisions: Overcoming chaos – Designing the future of the Web
- Dreamweaver ‘Next’ at WebVisions 2008
“Swing by, get an early look at what we’ve been working on back in the Dreamlabs, along with a lot of thoughts as to WHY we’ve been doing what we’ve doing with Dreamweaver.”
- Live from WebVisions 2008: Total Recall
“This presentation will explore the similarities and differences of effective information architecture and instructional design and will demonstrate how instructional design complements information architecture to create more thought provoking and memorable user experiences.”
- AboutUs.org’s Ward Cunningham at WebVisions
“If you dug Ward at PDX Web Innovators, you might continue the digging at this week’s WebVisions conference in Portland. “
