CIE's social media feeds

As mentioned in a recent blog post, we have updated our social media feeds. The aggregated RSS feed (incl twitter, blog, constant contact and google calendar) is now also available via facebook. That means you can follow us using any (combination) of the following:
We had a LinkedIn group, but the interface was clunky, so we shut it down in favor of maintaining the above.

.. And, yes, we will still be sending out invitations to CIE events and newletters via our Constant Contact email list. Subscribe here

Overview of UNSW and surrounding innovation system

In conversation with a few people around UNSW and Sydney, it's great to see a lot of interest in boosting the level of innovation and entrepreneurship around here. To help people who are a little newer to this eco-system understand who's doing what, we summarized a sample of the players here:

Too busy to tell you about what we're busy with

Oh, the irony. We are so busy organizing and coordinating events, that we're too busy to stop for a minute, invite the larger community to upcoming events or draft summaries and press releases about what just happened. by and large our online communication falls into 4 categories:

  • Events sponsored by the CIE (handled using constant contact & our email lists)
  • News of CIE related initiatives (handled using this blog)
  • Events by associated organizations (handled using google calendar)
  • News from associated organizations (handled by twitter) 

Each of these channels produces it's own RSS feed, each of which can by 'burned' to daily email digests using Google's feedburner too.

For the last couple months, we have been providing the links to these tools separately (i.e. follow us on twitter, but not google calendar or constant contact; or follow the blog, but not the other channels).

This is just plain confusing. As a result, we aggregated the four RSS feeds into one (using google reader), and burned it to a daily email digest (using feedburner).

To receive an individual RSS update of everything that we (re-)broadcast, please use this link:

To receive a daily digest email between 1200-1300 of everything that we (re-)broadcast, please use this link:

(If you are on our constant contact email list you will continue to receive personal invitations for events sponsored by the CIE)

Here is a screenshot example of one of our recent daily email digests:
