AES Webmaster Steve JohnsonNew York (September 30, 2009)–Everyone will be tweeting from the floor of the 127th AES Convention, to be held next week in New York, but no one with more authority than the AES itself.
Chair Agnieszka Roginska, has announced that AES Webmaster Steve Johnson has enabled Convention Chairs to make extensive use of Twitter throughout the 4 day (Oct. 9-12) event at the Javits Center. To follow the 127th Convention on Twitter click on http://twitter.com/AESorg. “We’ll be able to send tweets to let everyone know ‘what’s going on right now, and what’s coming right up’ at the convention in 140-character-long news bursts,” Johnson reports.
Additionally, Johnson and President Jim Anderson have arranged for the Convention’s comprehensive Calendar of Events to be available in digital format. “Attendees will be able to access the 127th Calendar using iCalendar technology, and then access it directly on their mobile phone or personal calendar using applications such as iCal or Google Calendar.”
“The connectivity options have been designed for ultimate flexibility,” Dr. Roginska explains. “Attendees can subscribe to an individual Workshop or Tutorial track, or as many as they wish. “For example, to subscribe to workshops visit http://www.aes.org/events/127/program, and click on the “subscribe to iCalendar” link next to the Workshops line.”
