The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum is launching a series of tweet-ups to continue discussions begun at The Conscience Un-Conference: Using Social Media for Social Good in December 2009. These informal gatherings are open to anyone interested in the application of social media and emerging technologies to further the missions of “institutions of conscience” or simply to people grappling with how to best use social media for “social good.”
The first tweet-up will focus on the hot topic of mobile technologies. It is scheduled for Monday, February 8, from 5:30 to 7:30pm at RFD (810 7th Street NW; Metro: Red, exit Gallery Place/Chinatown; http://www.lovethebeer.com/rfd-directions.html).
Joining us to set the stage will be Nancy Proctor, Head of New Media at the Smithsonian American Art Museum and writer of the blog MuseumMobile, http://museummobile.info/. Questions we hope to cover include: When should one create an iPhone app vs. using the mobile Web? What are important considerations when structuring a mobile giving campaign? What are best practices for integrating multimedia and text in mobile programming? What are the most innovative uses of user-generated content in mobile programming?
Come prepared to share your experiences, whether successes and failures, and above all else, just come to hang out, reconnect with your colleagues, make some new connections, and have a few beers.
If you have ideas for future tweet-ups, please share those as well!
