Social reporting blends online and off

Over on my blog socialreporter.com I've been exploring how a combination of journalism, facilitation and social media can help promote collaborations both online and offline. Here I've summed up How social reporters can turn old-style conferences into the new convening spaces, with links to a guide.
Earlier I wrote about the ideas of Etienne Wenger - who helped developed the concept and practice of online communities of practice  - on social artists and social spaces, how facilitatators can use video as part of the work, and how creating a blog for an event can help an organisation start to use social media.
