We used CoverItLive to capture the Twitter discussions surrounding the event hashtag #lis_dream2 and to provide a forum for non-Twitter users to participate in the event remotely. A full archive of these conversations is available online or as a Word document to download. From these exchanges you can get a sense of “live reviewing” of the event as it unfolded. As well as contributions from the delegates at the venue, 18 of the people who followed the workshop from a distance online contributed to the conversation. It’s good to see how a remote participant in Denmark – Ann Priestley – has used the workshop materials and “storified” the social network analysis session on her blog.
