At Social Media Cafe Last month Franics Irving the CEO of Scraperwiki discussed digital nests and where will we be making our digital home in future, will it be facebook or will that have goine by then or will it be that smaller networks spring up and populated by area, such as the Liverpool Network etc. So how will we use Social Media in future? Some of the new platforms debuted at South by South West may help answer that question or do they just muddy the waters more. 
Watch the video and come down to the next #SMCliv and contribute to the debate.
Talking to Francis after the event he said he rarely has enough time to blog about his ideas, I explained how much easier it is to use Audioboo to get your ideas down and it's good to see he has taken it up- you can listen listen to Francis's Audioboo channel and his first Audioboo right here. Which discusses knowledge gap paltforms. 

Social Media Cafe Liverpool is organised by How Why DIY a group of creative Technologists - join up.

    The Reader Organisation are looking for web workers to get involved in a project coming up at the end of January to help them promote reading to the people of Liveprool as part of an event called Impact48.

    The Reader has high hopes for the weekend and is looking for volunteers who can build apps, develop a website for the Liverpool – City of Readers’ project and create a marketing campaign that uses social media to promote the project. One app which the Readers think would be great would be a reading tour of Liverpool linking stories, authors and events to a mobile app – but a key aspect of the weekend is to find new exciting ways to get the city reading using technology.
