Liveblogging: EduServ Symposium 2008: Auntie’s view: BBC 2.0 Years On from Jeremy Stone.
New BBC homepage inspired by my favourite, Netvibes & iGoogle. Jeremy then highlighted The Apprentice and how other sites – The guardian & Twitter for example – build ‘content’ around it… do the BBC need to? This was followed by this comment from Brian Kelly on the online chat: “Very relevant question for HE. Are we here to create web sites – especially if popular ones already exist?”
Web as a Canvas – examples from Radio 1 as a pioneer: Radio 1 in Facebook, Bebo, YouTube, Twitter etc.
Need for the BBC need to open up more and make their ‘data’ available
Where are the People? – a lot of work to be done to get people visible on bbc.co.uk Top ranking site but participation is still relatively limited.
Existing BBC blogs enable accountability – e.g. BBC News editors
BBC as Producers/Editors or Curators? More integration – a blog with a radio show attached: iPM: Share what you know
