Liveblogging Tóstal na Gaeilge

March 24, 2006

24032006(009).jpgTóstal na Gaeilge is a bi-annual conference organised by the Irish language umbrella body Comhdháil Náisúnta na Gaeilge.  I’m here to talk about podcasting but I hope to take part in as many of the other sessions as I can.

This morning I gave a presentation to secondary school transition year students about social networking tools.  They told me about Bebo.  I talked about Flickr and tagging.  During the course of the presentation I set up a blog at tostal06.wordpress.com.  I’m liveblogging on that site, and I’m hoping to get others involved also, as well as encouraging use of the tostal06 tag.

I’m also podcasting on that site (feed), beginning with the audio from this morning’s presentation.

We’re in the Corrib Great Southern Hotel in Galway if you want to drop in!

Tóstal na Gaeilge

March 24, 2006

Táim ag triall ar Ghaillimh ar maidin inniu.  Heading to Galway for Tóstal na Gaeilge, the bi-annual Irish language conference.  This year’s theme is “An Chéad Ghlúin Eile” (“The Next Generation”).

I’m looking forward to hearing some great speakers and perhaps meeting some old friends.  Agus tá “gig” beag agam féin ar “imeall” an aonaigh!  Today I’ll give a talk on blogging, podcasting, tagging, social networking and general Web 2.0 goodness as part of a seminar for secondary school transition year students from the Galway region.  I’m hoping they can tell me all about Bebo!

I’m also trying to encourage a tagmob around the event, using the tag tostal06.

Má chasann tú orm ag an deireadh seachtaine, abair hello.  Beidh sé fuirist a dhóthain mé a aithint – tá seans maith ann go mbeidh mé sáite i dteicneolaíocht de shaghas éigin – mura mbeidh ann ach péire cluasáin!  Is díol trua mé, cinnte!
