…one great video and one great list both about blogging and podcasting…
Paull’s presentation to Gary’s students is available, in video, at the OnDemand at Centennial Special Events Speaker Series site. Check it out.
Paull Young, the Australian poster boy for using blogs, podcasts and wikis to jumpstart your communications career, came to speak at The Centre for Creative Communications as part of the Speakers Series, to talk about his digital and geographical rollercoaster ride.
Update: A suggestion for Centennial. Why not post your videos from this series to YouTube, Revver, Google Video, MySpace and/or iFilm. This way, many people that will likely never see your university’s Web site, might be driven to your site and consider studying at Centennial. Just a thought. I bet it will bring some new traffic, at the very least.
Among the topics discussed, Paull shared his work on the Anti-Astroturf Campaign, his work with the Forward blog and podcast, as well as a primer on several social media tools from Bloglines to LinkedIn and more. He also put in a plug for PRblogs.org, where Paull – and now Gary’s students – are blogging. PRblogs.org is our joint project with James Farmer – of Edublogs.org, Uniblogs, and Learnerblogs fame – in Australia. Small world, huh.
It is a good presentation. Paull’s made lots of friends on this trip. I think he’s establishing himself quite well. Paull’s off to the U.K. on February 1st. Here’s hoping some smart person snaps up this fella and puts him to work in public relations and social media.
On another front, I’ve been hoping to put together a list of all the people listed in the Ted Demopoulos book, What No One Ever Tells You About Blogging and Podcasting: Real-Life Advice from 101 People Who Successfully Leverage the Power of the Blogosphere. Turns out, I don’t have to … thanks to Bill Belew. Many thanks for the list, Bill. Much appreciated. I wanted to share it with my students.
…66 bloggers that will tell you “What No One Ever Tells You About Blogging and Podcasting”…
You’ll find the list in Bill Belew’s post at The Biz of Knowledge – The business of Higher Education, Trade Schools, Training and Online Education. It is titled 66 Successful Bloggers and What they can teach you.
Here is the list in Bill Belew’s post. Go get ’em.
Full disclosure: I’m in the book, but don’t make a penny from the sales. I do think it is a great book for beginning bloggers because it contains stories from people that have been able to use social media in a productive and positive manner.
