Twestival – tweeting up for charity!

February 10th, 2009

UPDATE:  See TVNZ’s coverage of the Auckland Twestival Twestival

This Thursday Auckland , Wellington and Christchurch will be the first places in the world to kick off a worldwide Twestival .

Twestival is like a normal tweetup , but it’s raising funds for CharityWater .

For just $10 at the door (or paid on the website) you can enjoy:

  • meeting other "imaginary friends" (people you know on Twitter but not in "real life")
  • free alcohol
  • possibly some music
  • being part of a world event that’s doing a lot of good!
  • and if you don’t even know what Twitter is, it’s a great opportunity to find out!

iJump is supporting the event and we’ll be saying a few things about social media and how it’s changing the world on the night. But only for a few minutes :)

The Auckland Twestival 2009:

  • Venue: Sale Street Brewery
  • Time: 5pm – about 9pm
  • Cost: $10 – all proceeds go toward Charity Water
  • Partners: Zendesk is the main sponsor; Sale Street Brewery are contributing; and little old iJump is helping get the word out.
  • HELP NEEDED: We’re still looking for someone to provide a laptop, large screen/projector and internet connection, so we can hook up with all the other Twestivals around the world! Contact Justin Flitter to help, or just leave a comment.

And thanks so much to Joi Design for putting together the nametags at such short notice.

Not subscribed to iJumpTV? Here’s what you’ve been missing

February 10th, 2009

If you haven’t subscribed to iJumpTV , you’ve been missing out on some exciting stuff, as well as thought-provoking book reviews.

I would say that, wouldn’t I! But seriously, while many social media blogs talk a lot about the tools, these interviews and book reviews look at the larger issues of how to manage a large organisation through the process of change .

The most recent book review is the contrarian Against the Machine , which I disagreed with (you might have guessed I would).

And just fresh off the press today, an interview with Luigi Cappel about the Location Innovation Awards , designed to get people thinking up clever ways to use mobile for marketing and business.
