  • Francesca Marano: How to Effectively Manage the Editorial Process in a Multi-Author Blog

    Francesca Marano: How to Effectively Manage the Editorial Process in a Multi-Author Blog

    WordCamp Nice 2018Speaker: Francesca Marano

    November 30, 2018 — Some years ago, I was lucky enough to be part of an inspiring and vibrant group of Italian female entrepreneurs sharing their stories in an online chat group. In 2013, we decided to add some structure to our exchanges and launch a blog. Five years later, the blog is still going strong and quite popular in Italy. It grew from a few friends contributing to 10 regular authors and 50 guest contributors. I’ll share the challenges we encountered over the years trying to create a smooth process for the growing number of authors and my experience in keeping the quality consistent while maintaining a schedule relevant to the audience’s expectations. I’ll recommend best practices including how to manage user permissions, how to assign editing and curation, deciding who has the final editorial say, and delegating the task of actually getting the content online. I will share practical solutions, based on what worked for us, that many different types of teams can use to coordinate their efforts and keep things in check.

    Martin Kuipers: Intelligentie vs Intentie

    WordCamp Noord-Nederland 2018Speaker: Martin Kuipers

    November 30, 2018 — “Als mensheid zijn we op een bijzonder punt in de geschiedenis aangekomen. Je zou kunnen stellen dat technologisch écht alles mogelijk is, dat we écht alles kunnen maken, als we er maar tijd en geld in steken. Kort door de bocht: dit brengt een hoop verantwoordelijkheid met zich mee: veel futurologen zijn het met elkaar eens dat er een groot risico is dat één van onze volgende uitvindingen het einde van de mensheid zou kunnen betekenen…
    Intelligentie komt steeds meer buiten ons te liggen. Ontwerpkeuzen worden door algoritmen gedaan. Productie laten wij over aan robots. Ik geloof dat de wereld ons hart dan ook hard nodig heeft…
    Graag neem ik iedereen die zelf ontwerpt, bouwt en werkt aan of met het internet mee in een verhaal over technologie, en geef ik je een denkmodelletje waarmee je een innovatief idee of product verder kunt brengen dan ‘just because we can!’.
