Whether or not you can make this or not, i think this is an excellent opportunity for people to share ideas and opportunities around a very sensitive subject.
I hope that after the roundtable, there is an opportunity to open up discussion perhaps via a network, or community as there will no doubt be many people who are simply unable to get to London on the date.
An extract from the blog post…
To start off with, we are looking to bring together multi-disciplinary group of senior managers and practitioners from childrens social services, teachers, police and health workers with social web technologist, public service designer, funders – or even just people who have a personal passion for this area – to help us design and run a small Safeguarding 2.0 pilot. Nothing big in the first instance, more a proof of concept if you like, but with the potential to transform the way in which professionals and non-professionals alike might better share information and form the kinds of relationships that might prevent future tragedies.

psf, psfbuzz, simon wakeman, twitter, web 2.0
At yesterday’s PSF web 2.0 event, Simon Wakeman gave an excellent presentation on Social Media in Medway Council. However for me one of the most illumating bits of his presentation was when he showed how a single council tweet was picked up and retweeted to gain positive reputation within the local area.
Simon’s slides are on his website and the particular section on twitter starts on slide 19. The rest of the presentation is also very interesting but i very much liked the twitter network diagram.
If you need to demonstrate how twitter can work then use these slides. BEWARE however that good news and b ad news travels through twitter.

You may well have already seen this, but i have only just managed to get around to it, after clearing out my inbox. What a therapeutic exercise that was.
McKinsey say the following:
To help companies navigate the Web 2.0 landscape, we have identified six critical factors that determine the outcome of efforts to implement these technologies.
The 6 are available in there post here Six ways to make Web 2.0 work – The McKinsey Quarterly – Six ways Web 2.0 work – Business Technology – Application Management.
