Is anyone considering twittering and/or blogging the 2009 APA Conference? Will there be anything to twitter about? Can twitter elevate the lowly planning conference to a super-connected hive mind that will simultaneously solve climate change, the economic downturn and NIMBYism? Honestly, I’m interested to see if any themes or crowd-wisdom can be distilled from the mass of noise that is twitter. I saw an interesting example of this type of real-time polling for wisdom on StockTwits the other day.
If you will be twittering (only between sessions, of course), I suggest using the hashtag #2009apa (explaination of hashtags here). Remember, you have to follow @hashtags before they will work. You can see my stream of consciousness during the conference here: @sustenance. I’ll be searcing the hashtag, but if you’ll be there and twittering, drop a comment and I’ll follow you.
