Next week I will be in sunny California attending my fourth consecutive OmniUpdate User Conference in Universal City.  This conference is always a highlight of my speaking calendar and I’m looking forward to connecting with many old friends and making new ones.

I will be unveiling a completely revised talk on web governance in higher education. Over the past few months I have been researching organization and governance in higher education and its impact on web governance and management. I love the concept of college campuses being “organized anarchies”.  In addition to exploring why web governance is needed and providing practical tips on getting started, I’ll be sharing my thought on how campus culture, campus decision making methodologies, organizational structures and governance structures all influence web governance.

I will also be participating on a panel discussion on Social Media and Mobile with @NathanGerber, @kylejames and @lightjump, moderated by @j_rex.  This will be taking place on Tuesday, March 6 at 11:15 am (Pacific Time). We welcome people to participate virtually in the discussion. We are using the live question tool from Harvard to add and vote on discussion topics. Please visit before and during the event to help shape our agenda.

The hashtag for the conference is #omniupdate12. If you are attending make sure you stop by and say hello.  And yes, the musical reference in this post is to the Zeppelin classic.
