2:16 am sputuk: Pondering #altc2009 debate on VLE;content is king;tool not the issue;wondering 'a bad workman blames the tools' perhaps too strong to say ;)
2:57 am A_L_T: Conference networking site - CrowdVine - now open http://bit.ly/qzOaz #altc2009

4:56 am jamesclay: @mattlingard @nrparmar @adamread I agree, #altc should be fine, #altc2009 is used to help search tools as it is also the conf. site URL.
5:28 am mattlingard: #Manchester is trending & #altc2009 hasn't even started
5:38 am stujohnson: To get to #manchester for 9 for #altc09 I'm having to get the 06.16 (r we still using #altc2009?

9:40 am virtualleader: @torresk signed up for your session #altc2009 - guess you won't be there? :0( to add insult to injury your name spelled wrong on schedule!!
9:44 am virtualleader: #altc2009 oh the difficulties of choosing between sessions: 3 I fancy all at same time....
9:51 am mattlingard: Torn: VLE is dead vs Tune on, tune in & listen to this #altc2009 Tuesday 13:40 sessions Probably opt for virtual attendance only for former
10:02 am theokk: Post has only just arrived; suspect weight of the ALT-C info pack may have slowed down our postman #altc2009

5:16 am virtualleader: @torresk rocardo torres ????? http://altc2009.alt.ac.uk/talks/show/6877
9:32 am briankelly: As tthere are lots of parallel sessions I'm wondering whether to use a specific hashtag for my #altc2009 session #altc-113 perhaps?
9:37 am AJCann: @briankelly Threaded discussions on the Friendfeed room really would be better for parallel sess'ns http://friendfeed.com/altc2009 #altc2009
9:50 am jamesclay: @briankelly remember hypens don't work in hashtags. #altc2009113 would be a better choice, but only useful if everyone does it. #altc2009
9:51 am TerryWassall: Lookng thru the #altc2009 pack for things to go to. As usual some time slots have 3 things I want and others none. There's the bar I suppose
9:56 am briankelly: @AJCann I agree, & have been using FF move since solo09. But will #altc2009 folk use it?
10:04 am briankelly: @jamesclay Forgot hyphen problem. Am suggesting #altc2009 AND session tag ##altnnnn along lines of #iwmw2009.
10:07 am emmadw: #altc2009 - crowdvine - not ignoring anyone ... - have jetlag (got back from hol 6am) & frantically sorting for conf in Majorca leaving 1am.
10:08 am emmadw: #altc2009 - intend to have brain more in gear in a few days
10:17 am briankelly: @ostephens Session nos. listed in CrowdVine e.g. see http://altc2009.alt.ac.uk/talks/show/6844 (my session is 113)
10:19 am ostephens: @briankelly but what is the 'session' number for http://altc2009.alt.ac.uk/talks/show/6779? 3 papers, 12 mins each - not worth a hashtag ea.
10:39 am jamesclay: @briankelly I wonder if two tags would work? #altc2009 and #sessiontag the reason is that #altc2009nnn would not be collated with #altc2009
11:02 am ostephens: @jamesclay @briankelly one incidental advantage of avoiding #altc2009 would be to avoid trending (and thus spam)!
11:13 am GrahamAttwell: nice to see there is a Cloudworks site for Alt C http://cloudworks.ac.uk/index.php/cloudscape/view/1870.html #altc2009

2:58 pm sputuk: Just wondering if there's way to get schedule out of crowdvine for #altc2009 into Outlook/gmail (to sync to iPhone).Must remember to check
3:19 pm francesbell: @farzanalatif Will watch out for you. #altc2009 is sold out (and great) but #falt09 is freeeeee!! and also great.
4:23 pm nrparmar: @elaines Will you be at #altc2009 ? I see that you're presenting! :-)
5:50 pm xlearn: Am shamelessly stealing friends from Seb Schmoller's Crowdvine #altc2009
5:57 pm sputuk: Pondering analogy to make agument that it's thing delivered that matters and not the means by which it's delivered (VLE not dead #altc2009)
