This event has been pulled together in less than three weeks. Those involved have not met face to face. Social Networking Tools, email, skype, phone alone used.
The event is being filmed by Asylum TV and will be shown on air.
Other tools are now being engaged to connect all parties and broadcast live, beam people in and more.
Part two of this amazing journey will appear shortly.
I leave part one with a copy below of a bulletin issued on myspace to promote the event. An interesting read, clearly demonstrating the power of social networking tools.
SOCIAL NETWORKING TOOLS REALLY DO ROCK!
From: "Nana" Mex Promoting Aussie Indies Date: 26 Sep 2007 3:31 PM Subject: Huge Thank You!! Benefit Gig Pre-post Body: What a Country and what an awesome mob of Independent Musos we have in this country!I put out a call for bands to do a free gig, get there, play, get home all for no pay, but to show their support for a legend. The response was even more huge than I could possibly have imagined. I want to say a special thanks to those bands and solo artists who would have had they been able to, and to those who rang just to see what they could do to help. The gig is set, the bands are working together, networking just as MySpace was designed for them to do to pull off this gig, and to see to it we have raffle items, that all musos have needed gear, and now they will begin to promote and sell tickets and make this the most awesome Indie Gig ever. Here are the preliminaries, with major posts, banners and posters to come over the 3 weeks between now and then.==================================================Downunda Thunda Indies for Life ...

I have found those currently active productive and effective, for both professional development and maintaining somewhat of a social network. To have a site where you can add a little personality, even playing games like, poker (I am a loser) or turning others into 'werewolves and biting them (Sue Hickton - I am coming) or just putting a nice comment out for the day, somewhere noticable on your page. Whilst there are numerous other applications to try out, and those already within my applications folder, I have found I need to be wary of making my site, tooooooo bussssssy. Even now as I write, I know that I need to edit the blipcast so that it takes less room and move around a number of other active applications. Note: This is an easy process as you are able to drop and drag the majority of applications to the position that suits you - you are your own instructional designer - oh dear, run to facebook and see if there is any logic anywhere - now:)) Why not delete the other applications? I will be perfectly honest, there are some I am yet to play with enough, to feel confident that they will provide any benefit, to myself or others. Of the others there are many I would like to position on my site, however at this point, the site is already busy and needs no more clutter. The Evolution of a Facebook site As time goes on, the page changes, some applications active yet hidden from full view, only to be found in the menu, some change position to provide maximum exposure for an event, success, cry for help, maybe on your whiteboard or your status. A twitter feed maybe comes in, myspace is accessed, emails retrieved, friends blog feeds and news updates continue, but may move just the same. New applications, continue to be developed before one can view the last 3950. Curiosity may get the better of you, new applications added, old ones revamped, some no longer current deleted. A range a themes, layouts, designs, backgrounds, become more easily accessible. All allowing you to show your creative flair, designing your world, one that you look forward to looking at as much as learning from and sharing, networking with your ever growing friend list and group memberships. For me making a one stop shop, the one I go to in the morning before I look at the online news, the one I hoped many months ago to find, was in my face - sorry - all the time - facebook. Direct Benefits Increased friend base through facebook contacts Increased discussions with others privately on various topics Sharing what I am doing with others Connecting with individuals interested in web 2.0 and beyond in a variety of arenas:
