I’m giving a talk at the first Twitter Developer Nest in London next Tuesday, with a talk titled You are a Neuron, on something that has been floating around in the back of the old mind for a bit. It is less of a technical ‘how to make this’ or ‘how I made this’ developer talk, and more of a call-to-arms or provocation to developers.
I’m going to step back from Twitter and look at the whole of it. And draw some parallels with other things in the world, like your brain.
It ought to be a bit of fun and provoke some new thinking. I’m thinking we need to go a bit deeper with these social utilities and really think about why something like Twitter is attactive and interesting. I’m quite sure it is not just about my friends and I having a chat.
Anyway, I’ll post slides and stuff as they come together.

I was lucky to attend the first one and I really recommend this workshop and follow-up session with Sarah.
It ain’t your standard marketing workshop. Sarah uses a variety of techniques to get deeply into what you want to communicate about what you do and then leads exercises that help explore what is stopping you getting the word out. We all want to be communicating honestly and authentically about who we are and what we do, and this workshop explores that in a surprising, supportive and fun way. And the followup one-on-one is great for cementing that new direction or going deeper.
In the Workshop:
We will explore a different way of looking at marketing that offers a bigger picture of where your business is, and where you would like it to be. We’ll use a systemic perspective and open up the idea of business communication as a flow of energy through your organisation. Approaching your business at a deeper level helps you check that your marketing messages are coming from the heart and are targeting the right people in the right way. This is a creative session with a small group in a friendly, supportive environment.
In the One-to-One:
Bring all your ideas from the workshop and use my professional experience to help you tailor your perfect marketing strategy. Channel your creative energy through your practical business plans.
I loved it, and I’m not one for marketing workshops. There was depth and authenticity in this approach that worked for me. You’ll see some of the results of my insight here on Nodestone in the next few months.

One of our special Nodestone colleagues Mr Jim Callender is running a session soon that can’t be missed. Well, except by us as we will be swanning around in France having a well earned break!
For those of you who will be around, do get along. Email is one of the most tried and true, low cost and high response online marketing / social media tools to use. Do it well, and it might even go viral.
Jim will be co-presenting with the now-famous pure360 – total email marketing solution people. Great resources available on their site.
