Hyde Park Conference

Dear wordpress watchers,

Today, I had a productive day. <– this is a great achievement. Lots of fidldy little chores were completed. Hurrah!

Started the day off by attending the Hyde Park Conference at the Cardigan Centre in Leeds. I went as press really- not intending to get involved with the debates and discussions that local residents and other members of the community-including Councillors- would start. Police officers, residents, students, land lords, and members of the council were there picking up on issues like bin collections, ‘youth noise’ (<- *yells* whatever that is)  parking, graffiti and of course the plans for Royal Park School.

I was seduced by mini post-it-notes, stickers and red marker pens.

Lots of talk about Twitter actually….yet again microblogging seems like the answer to reach out to the student population.
