Liveblogging Rota

Oh, lummy. I’ve even done a rote for liveblogging. Here you go for those who’ve kindly volunteered:

1455 – 1530 Jaki B

1530-1600 Julia H

1600-1630 Shona

1630-1700 Mark S


1730-1800 Kasper S

1800-1830 Jon H

18-30-1900 (Texas hook-up) Antonio R

1900-1930 Nicky G

1930-2000 Shona

We’ll be using Cover it Live as the live blogging platform. It’s dead easy to use, but if you want to go and have a play before the event, sign up for free here, click on the ‘try it now’ tab and go for the ‘practice session’. If I can use it, then a drunk goldfish could. Please let me know if you’ve got any problems with any of the above!

    My worry is not so much how does it work, more what do we say? Is it a running commentary on what’s happening, or something more sophisticated?

  2. Shona says:

    It’s pretty much a running commentary – I’ve preloaded bits of media we can use (daft videos, links and some standard text). Just blog what’s happening in the room 🙂

  3. Looks good. Hopefully everyone before me screws up so there won’t be too much pressure :-).

    …Just kidding, 30 minute slots are a good idea, it keeps it fresh throughout the day!

    Hmm, up first, pressure, need to set a good tone. If I do a good job will Jon H give me some credits towards one of his MAS?
