What’s Hot on the Fringe

fringelist-buttonA few changes today to the Fringelist.com top ten events derived from the most registrations made by conference goers to receive free SMS text reminders.

The new #1 is Google’s campaigning breakfast event.  Expect it to be full of hungover geeks tomorrow morning…

The Top 10 Tonight:

  1. Google’s Guide to Online Campaigning
  2. You TWEET If You Want To: #Twinge
  3. A Force to be Reckoned With: Police ReformNEW ENTRY
  4. Iain Dale’s Blog Readers’ Party
  5. Disinfecting Parliament
  6. The Thin Blue Line: How Do We Build Public Confidence in Policing?- NEW ENTRY
  7. Can Mentoring and Skills Reduce Re-offending?- NEW ENTRY
  8. Tory Bear and Friends Karaoke
  9. Conference PrideNEW ENTRY
  10. Save Our Pubs and Clubs Drinks Party

A lot of moves in the rankings from yesterday.  Three new entries focused on law and order, plus another social event entering the top ten – Conference Pride. Still no sign of a surge towards fringe events focused on Europe…

What’s Hot on the Fringe

fringelist-buttonAt the time of blogging there are 447 Fringe events on Fringelist.com. The ten events with the most conference goers registered to receive SMS text reminders after the first day are, somewhat surprisingly, not about Europe.

The Top 10:

  1. You TWEET If You Want To: #Twinge
  2. Iain Dale’s Blog Readers’ Party
  3. Google’s Guide to Online Campaigning
  4. Tory Bear and Friends Karaoke
  5. Disinfecting Parliament
  6. Trust in Politics: How to Get it Back
  7. Save Our Pubs and Clubs Drinks Party
  8. Why is the Left so Hostile to Israel?
  9. Will the Conservatives Challenge the Bully State?
  10. Tweet for Change/Bloggers Meet Up

The registrations only just got going yesterday so disproportionately favour events promoted online by bloggers, Twitter is big.  Social events are well represented…

The Tory Fringe Online

Looks like it will be busy this year on the Tory Fringe.  Guido is using Fringelist.com to organise his schedule online. Register for the service and it will send you free text reminders for events you add to your schedule.  The service integrates with Blackberry, iPhone and desktop calendars.  Or you can just print out the schedule on paper.

It integrates with social media networks Facebook and Twitter, tells you what the most popular event is, letting you search the Fringe to find out who is speaking where and when.  If you want to know where Hannan is, just search for his name. You will get a free text reminder telling where you are supposed to be before the event starts.  It is hangover proof.

It is very social, you can see where your mates are going : tory.fringelist.com/goers. For example you can see where Guido is going tory.fringelist.com/guido.fawkes

Dale Launches Video Advertising on Blogs

Some of you may have spotted that there are videos playing across the blogosphere starring Iain Dale.

In the video advertisement launching MessageSpace’s new user-generated “Lite” advertising service he amusingly demonstrates two ways of advertising on Iain Dale. Press play to see for yourself.

Guido should declare an interest in that his broadband bills (and a little bit more) are paid by MessageSpace.

Rumour has it that Kerron Cross is to star in the next video advert!

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
