BBC Online Industry Briefing: Trending on Twitter
Speakers listen to Victoria Derbyshire after Ralph Rivera sits down after his keynote. From right to left: Holly Goodier, Rachel Bardill, Phil Buckley, Cait O'Riordan and Ralph Rivera.
The delegates are all back at base, hopefully digesting the content of yesterday's BBC Online Industry Briefing. Before I put all the talks and videos online, here's a brief flavour of how the day went.
Trendsmap said that #BBCOnline was the second highest trending topic in Manchester at points in the afternoon. (They meant Greater Manchester. Ralph told us that taxi drivers had warned him not to confuse straightforward Manchester with Salford.)
Really interesting day at media city, loved tour of r&d, going to go read more about universal remote API & think re my screens #bbconline
Ralph Rivera announced a new £1m innovations fund, with regular hackdays and short-run 10-12 week projects. As delegates were briefed on audiences and business developement, Glyn Povah of Telefonica was distracted by the view:

There were some good questions too. Steve Reynolds (@jedifireblade) tweeted:
Good discussion around content on multiple devices, and online content, no talk so far on the bandwidth challenges we face #bbconline
Mike Dicks of indie trade group PACT looked at his packed diary:
#Salford and #Manchester are a media hotbed today, #mf11, #BBConline, #pactuk seminar and a little gig with @garybarlow
Glyn Povah continued to tweet through the day:
All this tweeting at #BBCOnline is rapidly depleeting my #iPhone battery. If it goes silent you know why
I'll post the videos from the event, with the comments around each talk, starting with Ralph Rivera's keynote today.
