September 2009

Life in General:

Now when it’s really cold outside it’s all forgotten that we had an indian summer in September. The weather was lovely and made us swedes in a happy mood :)

Friends:

Lorraine, Stephanie, Susanna and I had a little party at Susanna’s place before we went to Lemon Bar where we met up with Hanna and Malin. The night ended with a little walk in the “early morning” together with Lorraine before we went home.

Family:

I went home to my family to attend a funeral together with them. Even though Bosse weren’t a family member he has always felt like one and it felt like a matter of course to be there.

Personal:

I started to write on the series of personal blog posts about my interests. I didn’t finish this project though and since I hate to start with projects and not finish them I hope that I will get time to write the rest of the posts this year.

School:

In school almost everything was about the dementia project but we also had some nice lectures and workshops with among others Björn Falkevik and Joakim Nyström.

LiA:

In September my hunt for an internship in social media got a result when I got my internship at Tredje Statsmakten Media who are producing Medierna in Sveriges Radio.

Social Media:

I read a lot of blog posts during September and I even had time to blog about some of them that I really liked, I blogged about Brit Stakston and about Kristoffer Björkman. The big discussion in the social media bubble this month which started already in August was about the pointless babble and even I wrote a blog post about it which I don’t feel ashamed about yet ;)

In my own blog I tried to write about my interests as I mentioned above. The blog also got a little revamp with new plugins and widgets.

I also got my second internship period through Twitter.

Trips:

There was only one trip made during September and that was to my home county Östergötland.

Technology:

Andreas Ekström announced the “no Google day” at the 1st of September. Something he failed upon already 7am but Google failed aswell when Google mail crashed in the evening.

Music:

I made a list of 100 tunes from the 00-decade which I realized was to early when Markus Krunegård released a new album with the song Benny. Although I have listened a lot to my list so I am happy that I made it.

TV:

I watched the TV-series Signé Chanel (Fashion House Chanel) in September and I loved it. Within an episode of 26 minutes I laughed, was annoyed and felt sorry together with the participants.

Mobile shot:

This is what happens if you give me a banana cause I don't eat bananas.

Photo:

When I am browsing through my photos I can’t find any photo from September. Can it really be true? No photo of the month? I don’t use my camera often enough…

79% of my classmates are on Twitter

Lately I have heard alot of stories about Swedish journalist students absence at Twitter. A lot of journalist students don’t even seem to know what Twitter is, which in my ears sounds alarming. But don’t worry, I can tell you there is hope for the future because there is a group of students in this country called KNM08, also known as my classmates.

I am at my second and final year, studying Communication new media at Medieinstitutet in Stockholm. The education is pretty wide but concentrated to focus on new media and a third of it is internship periods. In the future me and my classmates will probably work as web editors, journalists, informants, copy writers, pr consultants or social media strategists for example. Our first week in school, just over a year ago, we had a lecture held by Annika Lidne about social media. We got introduced to Twitter and from the beginning most of us didn’t really understand how we could use it. For me it took even three months before I registered a Twitter account. Having an account didn’t make it for me though. It took about four additional months before Twitter hit the fan for me and I understood how useful it can be. I started to follow more interesting people and I got followers myself, not only spammers and irl friends. After the summer more and more classmates of mine followed my line and the hashtag #knm08 was born. I should also add to this story that Annika Lidne isn’t the only Twitter active lecturer we’ve had in school during the past year. For example we have also listened to and had workshops with Joakim Nyström, Björn Falkevik and Johan Lange who all should have thanks for bringing social media to KNM08.

During the last weeks even the late adopters in my class have started to investigate the world of tweets and now 22 of my 28 classmates are on Twitter. Most of us are also active tweeters and at Twitter we communicate with each other but also with our future colleagues. Twitter has become a great tool for us to get an insight in our future labour market and the industry we will work with. I have actually even got my current internship at Medierna through Twitter.

So if you are on Twitter, say hello to my fellow classmates, they are great guys, really.
