Friendfeed site for ALT-C 2009

Posted Monday, 24 August 2009, 15:29

Looking at Matt Lingard's Netvibes dashboard for ALT-C 2009 prompted the question, is there a FriendFeed group for the conference? There should be, although I can't find one at present. Why?

Reason 1: Archiving of otherwise transient information.
Reason 2: Threading of discussions - as at Solo09.
Reason 3: Plays nice with mobile devices.
Reason 4: I've just built one - and here it is: http://friendfeed.com/altc2009


Alan,
Thanks for doing this. I'm a semi-detached FriendFeed user but could do with a words of one syllable explanation of what this FriendFeed Group does and where it is getting its data from.

At present the FF group pulls the RSS feeds from this site (Crowdvine), http://conference-weblog.alt.ac.uk/alt_conference_weblog/, and the altc2009 tag from Flickr and Twitter. It's a public group so anyone can join and add items, as I did with the YouTube video this afternoon.
If you subscribe to the group on Friendfeed, I'll make you a group admin so you can control it (but you have to subscribe first - I've sent you an invitation).
