I came across this post from Tom Coates of plasticbag.org about a conference hosted by a UK representative of SixApart, makers of the blogging software Movable Type. He had this to say about Warwick Blogs:
I think the best speaker of the evening was John Dale who has been putting together Warwick Blogs for Warwick University (which look like a pretty stunning implementation of the weblog concept inside an academic context). I think the part of his talk that surprised me most was that of everyone I've ever seen trying to market and publicise weblogs they seem to have done it best. They had a whole series of pretty stunning stickers and posters and fridge magnets that they distributed all over the campus. I've never understood why weblogging companies don't explicitly target these venues – surely if you get them when they're young, imaginative and have a lot of free time then they're likely to stick with you for years.
Itís always good to see oneís university getting credit for stuff. Well done to the Warwick Blogs team.
