There’s a lot more to that graph of Nikki Pugh’s that I blogged yesterday. A hell of a lot more.
I roughly grouped what I wanted from events listings into 3 different aspects: going to see stuff (consuming/whatever you want to call it); knowing about stuff (for general background awareness or specific research); and me showing stuff (a sort of producer role). Wow, look how point-heavy the showing stuff area of the diagram is (top right-hand corner).
What Iâ€™ve done today is thought about 4 of the places I listed and looked at what aspects of my wish-list they provide for. I opted for a really quick, intuitive approach because itâ€™s a bit of an apples and oranges situation and Iâ€™m not really sure how youâ€™d start to make a rigorous comparison. What follows is probably more useful if you regard the 4 as different models rather than as specific instances. As ever this post comes with the warning that Iâ€™m just writing as things occur to me because this site is basically my sketchbook. Donâ€™t anyone else get too bogged-down by the details either.
Essential reading if you’re interested in how information about events and creative activity can be structured and how it then filters through to the target audience. Go read and digest.
