The ‘Adventures in Blogging’ session has taken a rather surreal turn – we’re in the dark, being told to imagine we’re liveblogging from a submarine. Complete with shaken chairs, attacks from cuddly angler fish, and… sea shanties. I haven’t been on many submarines, but I somehow think that last one is unrealistic.
I’d love to liveblog from the field for real, but I’ve never really worked out how you can do it when you’re in places, like Namibia, say, where there is no real internet access. Perhaps this session will illuminate me. One of the panellists has managed it from the Congo, though…
I’m certainly getting a few ideas for how it might be do-able. It would certainly be nice to not have my blog fall completely silent when I’m doing all the cool bits of my job. Do you think people would be interested in some field live-blogging?
