The web's tumultuous first decade is history, and we're now watching the rise of a new online zeitgeist. Whether you call it Web 2.0, cooperative technologies, or the Internet as platform, you'll want to know what it means for you, your work, your audience and your clients.

From July 31 to August 3 (9am to 4pm daily), SFU is offering four day-long workshops on four different aspects of the new media with leading industry faculty and guests.

  • July 31 - Day 1: The Future and the Now [ Summ 480 ]: web trends and standards, engagement with social networking, managing digital identity and working with the new breed of web applications

  • August 1 - Day 2: What Counts as Content Anymore? [ Summ 481 ]: copywriting for the multimedia web, evolutionary branding, positioning and design, and CSS, XHTML and standards-based design

  • August 2 - Day 3: Exploring New Formats [ Summ 482 ]: blogs, wikis, and social software, integrating the social into your business, monitoring and participating in the networked conversation, and podcasting and vidblogging your way to fame

  • August 3 - Day 4: Getting the Money to Flow [ Summ 483 ]: E-commerce, subscription services and advertising dollars, website optimization and search engine advertising, tracking and measuring your successes

Each workshop consists of presentations from industry experts and examples applicable to your situation and needs. Come for a day or come for the week. You'll leave inspired and equipped with the knowledge you need to make new media work for you.
