  • {G 101} From Pixels to Prints – leveraging Flickr to create a real-world community of photographers in Perth (Seng Mah PIP - Photographers in Perth *Flickr Group*) Flickr is an online photo-sharing application that is primarily used to show and share photographs, whether they be happy-snaps, family photos, or more artistic and professional photography pursuits. The Photographers in Perth (PIP) community was initially formed as a Flickr group for local photographers to show off their work, but has since evolved into one of the largest photography networks in Perth through the deliberate use of networking tools in Flickr and via the organization of real-world group events such as meets, photo shoots, workshops and group exhibitions. Come and find out how an online group becomes a successful offline community of practice and, if you are interested in photography, you may even be tempted to join PIP!


  • {G} Social Networks and the Federal Election (Stilgherrian stilgherrian.com) A look at how Australia's politicians are using and mis-using social networks in the 2007 Federal Election. How will this change the nature of our democracy?


  • {GT101} Podcast 101 (Tiang Cheng) Don't know the first thing about podcasting? Start here. We'll talk about how to subscribe to a podcast using iTunes, and then make your very own podcast.

  • {GT101} VBlogging 101 (Tiang Cheng) shows you a number of ways that you can make a video and share it on the web. We will be shooting, editing and posting video in this session. Lots of fun will be had by all. You can get started with a cell phone or a digital camera you already own. It's not as hard as it seems. We'll review some tips on shooting, editing and sharing fleeting moments. (Using windows software. Anyone wanna go halves and demo Mac software?)


  • {G} Virtual Worlds for Real Businesses (Bret Treasure Inside This World) Bret owns a virtual worlds agency specialising in business applications of Second Life. Why is IBM spending $100M on virtual worlds? Why is CSI going into Second Life? Shouldn't we all just cover our heads and wait for the Americans to do it? You'll get an understanding of what's going on, what the applications are and how to approach Second Life.


  • {G} On Passion and the Social Web (Jinnan Cai Buzka) An insight into how consumers, brands, online communities and the social web/media has everything to do with LOVE :) I hope you can join me in this feel-good talk about being inspirational and doing what we love.


  • {GN101} Pervasive Gaming for Play, Participation and Profit (David Fono Giant Dice) A whole new class of games are breaking the boundaries of conventional interactive entertainment. Pervasive games are played over mixed media; on city streets, or your office building; on Facebook, Myspace, and your mobile. Microsoft, Audi, and General Motors (amongst others) are spending millions of dollars on them. I'll tell you why, and I'll show you some stuff involving helicopters and laser beams while I'm at it.


  • {V} Put Your Mic On The Line (Paul Montgomery Tinfinger - note: must be before lunch if it is to go ahead) A discussion, as a panel if possible but at the very least a lightly moderated open mic, on exactly how serious attendees are about treating their podcasting and other entrepreneurial activities as real full-time product-based businesses, not just self-indulgent hobbies or parasitical consultancies. This session will challenge your ideas of what a podcast, and by extension an Internet startup, can mean to your life if you let it. The lessons of Paul Graham will get a big run, as will the case study of Keith and the Girl.
