Roo Reynolds – a must!


I’ve just watched Roo Reynold’s closing keynote at the ReLIVE08 (Researching Learning in Virtual Environments) conference and I’m just so smitten!

Firstly – you just have to be impressed that he came with nothing and worked through the entire conference by taking notes so he could sum up the whole conference as a closing keynote. That’s ballsy! What a gift for a conference!

Roo Reynolds is in charge of social media at the BBC (I think that’s a good way to sum it up), but he himself says: “I look after social media for BBC Vision, which is the TV bit (e.g. there are people with similar roles to mine in news, radio and the central ‘future media & technology’ teams, and I work closely with them)”. If you’re working with social media in any shape or form you have to follow Roo Reynold’s blog. He’s smart, reflective and a whole lot of fun!

I definitely recomend watching this closing keynote – the conference sounds interesting and he’s got so many reflective comments. And the dude has got some major presentation skills! Very impressive, indeed.

I, of course, enjoyed the way he focused on Castronova’s lecture which mention the importance of play. He has a bit about alt txt – alternate – should we focus on the alternate – why not equivalence – lovely!!!

I have to dash to Sunday night dinner – so I’m sorry for the hastiness and nonreflective writing. But go to Roo Reynolds blog and you’ll find what you’re looking for.

  1. [blush] Thank you!"Roo Reynolds is in charge of social media at the BBC" is nearly right. I look after social media for BBC Vision, which is the TV bit (e.g. there are people with similar roles to mine in news, radio and the central 'future media & technology' teams, and I work closely with them). Hope that makes sense, and I'm very glad you enjoyed my talk.

  2. [blush – then very much blush]Thanks so much for coming by and commenting! Very big of you! Thanks for the time! Will correct your details, of course!
