Proof that even when getting down to sirius conferuns bizniz, people still have that natural inclination to play and turn the whole thing into one big game. At the Hello Digital 2009 conference everyone settled down in the main hall for the opening speeches…and a game of battleships ensued on Twitter.
It started with people stating their locations (‘one row behind and 6 seats to the right of @paulbradshaw’) and others present trying to trace them. It then progressed to launches of torpedos and the like – the audience were trying to take each other down. So next time you’re at a conference and find yourself a little distracted, don’t drift off – connect to those around you via Twitter and have a little fun.
