Making the Web work for you…

September 1, 2006


I’ll be talking alongside Adam Gee at the Channel4 / IdeasFactory event “Making the web work for you” in Inverness on the 7th September. Aimed at producers wishing to use web platforms to gain media coverage of their work, we’ll be discussing the online media communities such as Channel4’s FourDocs (which I project managed into existence) and the usual niche media alternatives such as YouTube, MySpace and Flickr. We’ll also discuss (I’m sure) licencing, podcasting and of course open-source collaboration – so it’s likely to be the full spectrum of pros and cons of creativity online. The event is free, so if you can make it, do pop along and say hi. Full details here.

I had a quick search for Creative Commons photo’s tagged with ‘Inverness’ on Flickr to see what activity is going on – the photo above is from Calum Davidson aka ccgd. After discovering these amazing images I read that Calum also administers the Scotland Flickr Blog – which is a stunning collection of images and a fantastic example of what we’ll be talking about on the day. In fact – I’ll use it as an example.

Ah – it’s good to practice what you preach..
