It is interesting to watch how more conferences are amplifying their effect through a variety of network tools and collateral communications.

Stuart Dempster of JISC has just sent me a note about the recently held JISC e-Content Symposium (see reports of discussion on the Strategic Content Alliance blog) and associated Digitisation Conference. Check out reports of the conference on the conference blog, pictures on Flickr, the presentations, podcasts, and, hey, there is even a Facebook group devoted to conference interests.

The conference content is 'published' as part of a wider set of materials about the JISC Digitization Program and the Strategic Content Alliance. The use of the blogging environment with material organized with categories is also something we are seeing more of.
