Polling for a July date

With all the excitement of the university’s social media strategy; the impressive roll-out of Connections and of course recent announcements from Apple, Microsoft and Google – not to forget Digidol of course – it must be time to have another meet-up and a cup of coffee.

I’m posting here the meet-o-matic link, please use it so that we can see if we can find a date in the w/b 9th July for a chat in the Costa Coffee, Park Place, Cardiff.

Look forward to seeing you! Oldies and newbies alike. Stay as long, or as short, a time as you like.

Spring clean your minds – Take 2!!

[Updated post – too many people, including me couldn’t make next Wednesday, revised date and time.]

Well, Christmas lethargy has almost passed. One hopes the cold and snow has gone for this year too. Now’s the time for a little spring-cleaning! That’s what we’re doing in our house at the moment and it occurred to me that’s what needed with our minds sometimes. We carry around so many thoughts and ideas that it’s difficult to focus on what is actually the most important. What is it that actually needs to get done? What is it that needs to be written on our blogs, or what that we have written needs to be posted.

An excellent example of latent thinking and writing surfaced over the weekend in Kelly Page‘s “Social ways of working in Higher Education“. In a tweet, Kelly mentioned that she’d written this post a year ago but hadn’t been sure whether to post it, or not. How often is that so true. How many other ideas and thoughts are getting cobwebs collecting around them that are crying out to see the light of day. How many others just need to be swept away, to allow others to emerge and grow?

So that’s the theme of the next Thought grazing Social Media Cafe (#tgsmc) to be held on Friday morning, 9th March from 11:00am at Costa Coffee in Park Place. Come and do a bit of thought spring cleaning as well as have a good chat and cup of coffee (and a cake), or two.

Coffee & cakes time again

In a bit of a rush this time, but felt we all needed another cup of coffee and possibly a cake (for Simon & Joe). So suggesting we meet up again in Costa Coffee, Park Place, next Tuesday – 15th November from 11:00 to 14:00 for a general chat over all things social media, including (as ever) changing the culture of the organisation, good practice, new tools, new gadgets and of course progress on existing programmes of work and initiatives – grant funded and unfunded, sponsored/initiated by the university/department or independent.

Come along and join the “regulars” – we had 11 at our meet-up last month. We all have a passion – “damn fine coffee” …

Enjoy
