Captivate - a conference to remember

Paul and I are busy running the last workshop on blogging. Well, at the moment he is running it and I am submitting this post. But all in all, the Captivate Student Media conference was a great success.

The speakers were diverse, provided some really interesting insight into the industry and into the future of student media. Today was really great as we tackled the issues that student media face, and there was some healthy debate conversing between the delegates and the speakers.

Studentwire and Jo's Toolkit were introduced this morning and seemed to have created some interest from the delegates, a good sign, as these two entities aim at providing transparency, information and control to student media practitioners. I presented Jo's Toolkit (see pic) and hope to have triggered some motivation from the delegates to participate.

Thanks Vincent, Paul and Mark for your posts on the presentation and for contributing this weekend. A big up goes to the entire Captivate Comm, they did a tremendous job organizing a conference which proved to be well worth participating.

The lack of participation of lecturers has been discussed here; I don’t want to get into it right now!

View the Captivate blog here to see what has been happening!

Conferences for the year are over. No more running around, driving around, organizing this and that and most of all, no more conference food! YAY!

    Congrats on a fantastic presentation, Gregor :) You all had such valid points to make about student media, and I sincerely hope that the industry will begin to take SM more seriously.
