Sheffield at the Microsoft Faculty Summit
This year Microsoft invited the iSchools to send a representative to their annual conference for university researchers (mostly in computer science), the Faculty summit, at their HQ at Redmond nr Seattle, WA.
Andrew Cox drew the lucky straw, because there was a strong social media strand to the event this year.
There were two full days of talks on latest developments including on social media and crowdsourcing, see http://research.microsoft.com/en-us/news/features/facultysummit2012-071612.aspx
There was also a “Future of social experiences” Social media workshop attended by most of the iSchool delegates.
