Guest Post: Post Your Favourite IWMW 2007 Video Moments
Posted by ukwebfocusguest on 3 September 2007
The regular guest blog post this month features a number of articles about the Institutional Web Management Workshop 2007 (IWMW 2007) held at the University of York on 16-18th July 2007.

Brian has kindly asked me to write about our experiences in streaming the recent IWMW 2007 plenary talks.

Once clicked, a new browser window opens a special URL which starts playing the stream at the point you specified. Simply cut and paste this URL into a comment on this post, or anywhere else you feel like for that matter. (Neat huh? Now there’s something you can’t do on Google Video, yet!). For the record, here are my top three favourites:
I’ve focused on the lighter side to get things going, but you might want to highlight something that made you think, learn, worry or recoil as much as smile or laugh – anything really that stuck in your mind and is worth a second look.
