So the Saturday just gone was awesome.
Not the most technical term I know, but probably one of the most accurate.
For those that don’t know, Saturday the 20th of October was the Christian New Media Conference, held by Xianne New Media in partnership with Codec and Premier Christian Media.
This conference aims to take a look at current and emerging media and technologies, and apply them to church. Roughly.
The day was brilliant. With over 25 speakers in a range of different talk ‘streams’ there was something for everyone. And there was a lot of ‘everyone’.
I was on of the 400 odd men and women that travelled to Kings College London for the conference. From a show of hands in the main lecture theatre it seemed that attendance this year had nearly doubled from the previous year.
Social media was a key part of the conference. Not only was it one of the main focus of the speakers, but it was extensively used by those attending. And I mean extensively.
On average there were 500 tweets an hour pouring onto the #cnmac12 hashtag.
There is far too much for me to include in a blog post, which leaves me with asking you some questions instead.
- If you attended the conference, what was your best bit?
- What was the main message to you?
- If you didn’t or did attend, will you be next year? Why?
Thanks for reading, it would be great if you could comment!
One last thing: Pickle.
