5 reasons to liveblog instead of live tweeting

Nov 28, 2011
Commentary by Stephen Downes

I'm adding this link to the 'conferences' paper (which I'll probably keep updating for a while as I think of new things). I really like the reasons outlined here, as they get to the core of love-blogging:
- a liveblog forces you to genuinely pay attention
- it also forces you to write.
- it can be intensely engaging
- it’s a service to your readers
- it can be a service from your users
There's also a really good checklist of things to do before you liveblog - have you set up, have you tested your gear, do you have the relevant facts (like speaker names, etc) handy, etc.?
