For Speakers

Thank you for agreeing to share your time and expertise with us!

  • We meet in Communications 302, the opposite end of the building from the elevators. See a campus map.
  • You’ll need a permit to park on campus; check your Twitter account for the magic phrase to tell the parking kiosk attendants for free parking.
  • The class runs from 6.15 to 10.00. Guest speakers (“the panel”) are scheduled from 6.30 – 7.15(ish) with questions*. You are welcome to hang around as long as you like after that — but we may put you to work. :-)
  • The classroom has a PC workstation with internet connectivity and “audio out.” Or you can bring your own laptop; our laptop station has a standard VGA input (warning for Mac folks – please remember your adapter!).
  • I suggest a few minutes of prepared remarks (with or without slides) and then discussion. Given that there are two people each night (with one exception*), please focus your opening comments succinctly on the following points.
    (1) We are especially interested in how/why your organizations got involved with Twitter — and lessons learned.
    (2) We’re also looking for your thoughts on the big umbrella topic — “best practices” — as well as other organizations that you think are doing a good job with Twitter/real time web.
  • We will be recording the session unless you prefer that we not.
  • We will be live-tweeting the session unless you prefer that we not.

* When we have three of you, obviously we will extend the time period allocated!
