Inaugural Episto Tweet conference #twecon

On Friday 3 December 2010, 2 days after delivering the paper in person at LIANZA 2010, I took part in the wonderful inaugural #twecon, organised by @HORansome (Matthew Dentith). He has archived the entire experience on his blog.

All of the papers were interesting, challenging and thought provoking, just as all good conferences are. I was amazed at the quality of information passed on in six short tweets. It was quite an exercise to ensure each tweet was a pure distillation of a concept.

Here’s my contribution:

1 “Hanging out : preserving an ephemeral print culture in Dunedin”. Signs made to mark student habitation http://tinyurl.com/2cgx9ug #twecon

2 In the 1930s flatting was a no-no. Options for ‘digs’ were few: stay home, live in Halls or board. http://tinyurl.com/25etw3w #twecon

3 Liberal divinities students set up the first flat, The Bach, on Leith St. It existed for nearly 10 yrs. http://tinyurl.com/29j35ye #twecon

4 Naming is about creating community in a unique campus environment. Facebook provided a space to connect http://tinyurl.com/26fce88 #twecon

5 Creating of a sense of place and identity by naming a flat can have a lasting effect – creating an icon http://tinyurl.com/238tazf #twecon

6 Some names endure, some are ephemeral. Hyde Street has a high turnover. They are all worth preserving http://tinyurl.com/24rpnzz #twecon
