Wearing my IBF hat, I’m involved in setting up and running a 24 hour online event in June this year.
It’s called IBF 24 and is being designed as an online conference focusing on intranet innovation.
Starting at 11am GMT on June 18th, the plan is to follow the sun, so there are three consecutive zones each with an eight hour timetable. This means wherever attendees are in the world they should be able to choose a zone that doesn’t require getting up in the middle of the night, unless they want to of course.
There will be live intranet demos from companies who’ve cracked people-finding and established social computing as part of their working environment. Keynote speakers will cover subjects including innovation, search, design and the future of work.
For IBF member organisations, there are 10 places available as part of the annual membership. Non-members need to pay to register.
We’re setting up a site to support the event, more on that soon.
Also we’re looking for ideas to share about how people are using the day to promote their intranet, or some aspect of it, within their company.
If you work on your company intranet this day might provide a good focus for raising awareness within your company of the intranet itself. You could host an intranet day within your company, with awards handed out for the most usable service or site.
