I am a Web Connections whore

One of the interesting facets of WD06 was Web Connections. A social networking tool produced by Tim Lucas and Cameron Adams to allow attendees to connect up and tag each other. I ended up in the most popular list, mainly because with 15 members of the Perth Port80 posse at WD06, we all had a big number of established connections.

Even without wifi access for the workshop days, I attempted to connect to the people I met. This earned me a web connection whore stickers from Andrew K. and Ben Buchanan, but connecting paid dividends. I found from Drew’s profile that other than probably the only non posse attendee from Perth he was using the same CMS as DOCEP and we got to swap war stories and will stay in contact. When I spoke to Todd at the Sydney Port80 meet I found La Trobe University have just installed the CMS we are considering for the library. I was going to catch up with Todd at WD06, but never did, so I just grabbed his hcard from web connections so I get in contact with him.
