Introducing OneTag

Posted on March 24, 2008


You might have noticed I’ve been a bit quiet on the blog front for the last couple of weeks. This is because I’m having a drive to send some ideas partying and have therefore been knee-deep coding my latest project most evenings.

OneTag logoI’ve put together an idea for people who run conferences or events. It’s called OneTag ( It’s very simple conceptually, although as I’m discovering, a complete *dog* to code… – the idea is that it aggregates all the “buzz” about a particular (live) event and then provides the means to view this in different ways.

Usual “it’s a beta” disclaimers apply…

I’ve agreed with David Bearman and Jennifer Trant that I’ll be trialling the system during the Museums and the Web 2008 conference in Montreal.

I need your help…

First off, if you’re going to the conference and intend to blog, twitter or upload any photos then the global tag follows the same pattern as previous years and is therefore mw2008. If you’re blogging then just add this as a tag or category; if you’re twittering then please use the hashtag #mw2008 as part of your tweet.

Second, if you’re the owner of a blog or other social networking site, will be blogging about the conference and have feed addresses you can supply me with, then let me know in the comments or via email and I’ll add these to the OneTag aggregator.

Finally, if you’d like to get access to the mw2008 OneTag feeds and views to help me test them then do feel free to get in touch – again, via email if you know it or using the comments to this post. Alternatively, tweet me direct at

I’m at the stage where as many critical eyes as possible is going to help muchly..

Thanks in advance!
