2015, February: Nordic Research Network Conference

The Nordic Research Network Conference 2015 (#NRN2015) was, without doubt, the most well-organised conference I have ever attended. I had the pleasure of presenting a paper on the increasing importance of social media to Orcadian communities.

A Storify summary of the Conference is available online here.
