Project Redstripe went to a meeting of the Social Media Club yesterday. It’s an informal gathering of various webheads that is organised by Lloyd Davis. Unfortunately, we had arranged to go to dinner so we couldn’t stay till the end, but I did learn a couple of neat things, and meet some interesting follk.
Rav, turned me on to the idea of peer media networks. He looked perplexed when I asked him what publications he read, because he and his colleagues had set up a private digg-style system. They tagged the articles that they thought were important, so he compiled news that was relevant to his context. That’s what I call a local news site.
Now, how interesting would it be if Economist journalists bookmarked all the pages, papers and articles they read?
Thanks Lloyd for organising it and see you at the next one.
