Manchester Digitals Big Chip Awards via Secondlife, Twitter and Flickr

Big Chip Awards Manchester In Second LifeTonight is the big night. It’s the Manchester Digital Big Chip Awards. We will be there in force. It’s always a damn fine night out and we get to make fools of ourselves amongst our peer group. We also see a lot of great work get acknowledged. This year, the event is going to be broadcast via Secondlife. The shows’ host, Anthony H Wilson, has a Secondlife avatar and I’m told the presentation will be available from the Manchester Island.

However, not to be outdone, we at PushON will be broadcasting the event in our own personal way. An experiment in Social Media narrative if you like. On the right hand side of this blog, there is a side bar. This publishes the short and sweet comments of the PushON staff via Twitter. ( As I write this, Twitter is down for maintenance so fingers crossed). We will also be taking pictures via various mobile devices and uploading via Flickr which is then republished to the Blog. So, in effect, you’ll be getting a very personal flavour of the biggest awards ceremony of it’s kind outside London. Clearly, there is room for absolute humiliation here as the wine will be flowing freely. Here’s hoping judgement and good taste don’t get too much of a battering tonight!
