Google Wave vs Twitter at conferences

Twitter has quickly become the must-have channel for conference back-chat. Reading what other people tweet during a speech provides an extra dimension as you get a sense of what the audience is thinking. And just like passing notes in class, it’s also a lot more fun than simply sitting and listening. (and empowering - remember that Facebook interview from SXSW’08?)

Twitter is also a great way to attend a conference without actually being there - just follow a conference hashtag (e.g. #smib09 or #figarodigital) and find out all the gossip and the key points from the comfort of your desk.

But watch out Twitter. Google Wave is going to take this digitally-enabled conference back-channel a step further.

At the recent Ecomm conference delegates were provided with Google Wave accounts. What resulted was a fantastic showcase of collaboration and crowd-sourcing. Sprinkeled with a good dose of integrated offline and online real-time social media.   <- way too many social media buzzwords.

Here’s what happened: an audience member would create a Google Wave and others in the audience would edit the wave during the presentation. The result would be a crowd-sourced write-up of the presentation: a transcript of key points and a record of audience comments.
Here’s an example:

1. Audience member starts a Wave

google wave edits

2. Others join and edit the wave as the speaker talks

google wave edit1

3. By the end of the talk there are lots of people using the Wave (their photos are along the top) and the Wave became a complete record of the key points plus audience commnets below.

For this conference the organisers created a Wave directory so that you could find what was said in each presentation.

The organisers also added waves so that the audience could give feedabck about the conference in general and ideas for next year.

It’s worth pointing out that Twitter is still an early-adopter phenomenon, and Google Wave even more so. As a result, whilst I am a complete junkie for following conference tweets, I suspect it’s going to take a couple of years before this goes mainstream. But it will. And the impact on conference organisers and speakers is significant.

And just in case you are new to social media, make sure you check out the other excelent social media platform for conference notes: Slideshare. This is always the best place to find presentations from conferences.

Have you tried following conference tweets? Or waves? If so, have you found them useful? and will augmented reality will be the next major influence?

    Great article, great to hear about this. I’m still waiting for my Google Wave invite :( .

    There is way cool stuff you can do to leverage Twitter at conferences and make it better. Using Drupal and its FeedAPI module, I recently aggregated tweets from a conference-goer who was taking notes on sessions. Though the cases I’m pointing to are one person’s tweets, it could easily be extended to group note-taking, mimicking more the affect that the G Waves created. Check it out at: <a href="http://jewishorgnews.com/jstconf09/jaeger-report-on-pro-israel"<http://jewishorgnews.com/jstconf09/jaeger-report-on-pro-israel.

    Not only conferences, but how about class rooms. With more students in possession of electronic note-taking devices, how incredible to collaborate on note taking during a teacher lecture. Heck, the teacher could start it off with the topics pre-filled and the class fills in the notes.

  17. amin:

    Very interesting! The wave about the photography reminds me of a normal forum discussion, but now it take the form of a Wave. Can’t wait to get my invite in my inbox :) !

  18. Anand Srinivasan:

    Awesome example of a Google wave use-case. The term ‘real time collaboration’ makes it looks like the wave is going to be used only by enterprises working on a single project from various locations. But like you have just put, it can be put to amazing uses in conferences, classrooms, office meetings (how about jointly preparing the minutes of meeting), virtual classrooms, etc.

    wow, this is actually a revolution in the making.

    @dsfdsafsadf:

    Great article - and yes, having now participated in Google Wave usage during eComm Europe (remotely) and then last week at VoiceCon and Enterprise 2.0 in San Francisco, I can say that it’s a *great* way for collaborative note-taking.

    For those looking to learn more, I did a basic screencast on the topic here - http://bit.ly/2KdF2t - and I’m planning to do a second showing more of how it actually worked in a live editing session.

  40. Timothy:

    Wow, that’s really interesting. I’d never thought of using Wave like that.

    One thing I’m wondering though. I’ve never really been to a conference that used Twitter a lot so I’m unsure… are most people using Twitter on mobile devices? Or laptops?

    Since at the moment, I’m pretty sure you can only use Wave on a PC, and the beauty of Twitter is you can quickly stamp out tweets from a mobile phone.

  47. Mike:

    We’ve been using irc, IM, and so on for as long as laptops with wireless has been available at conferences. Wave offers some nice features but it seems like a step backward in some ways.

  70. Jorge Pereira:

    I recently attended a conference (#uploadlx http://uploadlisboa.com) mainly dealing with “web 2.0″ from social, non-technical perspective. It sported a large Twitter Wall facing towards the public. The comments could generally be divided into the following areas:
    - comments/reactions to the ongoing presentations (both good and bad)
    - excerpts of the ongoing presentations (basically, a “retweet” of whatever was onstage, speech -> text)
    - general comments about the event (the organization, the coffee, …)
    - totally unrelated, noise, people seeking attention

    The general opinion seems to be that the Twitter Wall was a success, although some of the people on stage didn’t really enjoy having asynchronous reactions on behalf of the public, or sharing the stage with the Wall.

    But one thing is for sure, it brought great life to the event. :)

  71. Pedro Gil Candeias:

    Like Jorge before me, I too atended #uploadlx and I must say the Twitter Wall was an excellent addition.

    I’m not sure about using Wave at a conference, though. All that collaboration is great in theory, and sure the results are amazing, but if you’re going to spend the conference waving then what’s the point in actually being there? Writing takes up a lot of attention, and if you went to a conference with a Wave Wall and used it, chances are you didn’t really pay attention to the speakers.

    IMO, Twitter is the better choice for real time feedback due to its simplicity.

  72. Barrie:

    Until I can use Google Wave from my mobile phone Twitter is an easy
    choice. Google Wave not even in the running until then

  73. Jeff Korhan:

    This indeed is great for the future of conferences and meetings and the people that depend upon them. This includes not only associations and professional speakers like me, but I imagine just about every professional that benefits from those learning experiences.

    My sense is this is more personal than Twitter hashtags, and therefore more likely to encourage engagement.

  74. Charlie Osmond:

    Hi everyone,
    Thanks for the stories and insights. I think the consensus is that Twitter will continue to lead until Wave becomes more broadly adopted (and available on mobiles).

  76. KerryJ - Education.au:

    It’s interesting to see the evolution of all these tools. For the past few years I’ve used CoveritLive to bring the backchannel into conferences. Last month I used it in conjunction with Twitter and Ustream to share conference proceedings. I was able to feed Twitter into CoveritLive more effectively than the Ustream chat, so that’s why I used both.

    I recommended people use http://tweetchat.com/ so that their Tweets were automatically tagged and they could see an aggregated stream of related tweets.

    I’d have to see Google Wave in action in a conference context before I could comment fully - but it seems to me that trying to gether people together around one wave results in a kind of a walled garden. Plus, to me — I don’t want the audience worrying about taking and amending each other’s notes — it’s the discussion that is important. They can get the notes and slides from Slideshare

    Thanks for an interesting post - obviously there’s a lot of new thinking going on around conferences and sharing online. We’ve been discussing the ins and outs of streaming audio http://kerryj.com/2009/11/12/covering-edayz09-todays-coveragetomorrows-schedule/ on my blog, would welcome your input.

    But hasn’t Twitter been around for over 3 years. Also, the difference is that Twitter users jumped on conference reporting organically - accounts did not need to be set up for them.

  85. Darine:

    By livestreaming their conference on wave the organizers have actually monopolized it, to those invited to the Wave and those attending the conference. Which is the complete opposite of what Twitter does - exposing the event to the general public of people’s followers, spreading the word about it and involving the world as opposed to the event’s attendees. So I guess your choice of toll really depends on whether you want to share or hide.
