In a couple of weeks time I’ll be taking part in the fourth Engage Your Community – a web conference for community organisations:
There is a staggering amount of technology today that can be of great benefit to non-profit, community, and voluntary organisations. EYC offers two days of informative seminars and hands-on workshops about these technologies and concepts surrounding the web.
Is it tomorrow already?
On the 28th April 2011 I’ll be presenting a show and tell session called Is it tomorrow already?:
Miraz offers a whirlwind tour of the incredible array of current research and development in the science and tech worlds and points out some of the highlights that will be changing our lives in the next few years. Will cars drive themselves? Will robots sing and dance? Will we operate bionic arms just by thinking? Will spray on skin heal burns in days? Will we print a new kidney if we need one? Which of these things have already been achieved?
I’m already having a lot of fun developing my ideas for that session, though figuring out where to start has been a problem. There’s just so much going on!
FFS: write well for the web!
On the 29th April 2011 I’m running a hands-on workshop about writing for the web:
Think you know what FFS stands for? You may be wrong. In this writing workshop Miraz Jordan shares specific techniques for catching a reader’s interest, keeping it and encouraging them to take the actions you want them to take. Bring a 1-page piece of writing to work on.
If you’re in a community organisation, or are just interested, do come along.
