week 5- final

today you’ll present your class projects.

Post documentation (or links to documentation) to this blog. Your assignment for the final was to pick one, documentable, concrete action that you wanted to persuade your audience to do and then get them to do it.

In other news– while this class has been happening we had the announcement of google plus brand pages and just now we’ve had the announcement of Twitter’s brand pages

Looks like they’re not available to just anyone yet, but they will be soon, so if Twitter is the right channel for you to be focused on you can use that.


Principals of Building and sustaining community

  • First I want to hear about your plans — what are you doing? who are you talking to, what are you saying? through what channels ?
  • Cool points
  • Three principals of Communities on line (and maybe everywhere)
    All communities want

    1. sense that they are contributing to something greater than themselves
    2. means to at least effect what that something is and where its going
    3. recognition from the community for their specific contribution
  • Technical Demonstration

  • In-Class Exercise:  YOUTUBE: Posting to youtube << bring a digital video camera and the means to get files on to your class computer
  • Homework Assigned: Start executing your plan
