Social media campaigner Jon Morter who helped Rage Against the Machine get to the UK Christmas No.1 spot in 2009 is to be the guest speaker at this year’s DotConf at the National College of Ireland on 28 June.

The event, now into its fourth year, caters for a wide and varied audience of digital enthusiasts from start-ups to students, digital marketers, designers, software architects and educators, to name a few.

Speakers this year include James Whelton, co-founder of the Coder Dojo movement of coding clubs, Claire Redmond of the Football Association of Ireland and Andrea Magnorsky, co-founder at BatCat Games.

“Ireland’s online community is full of hard-working and talented people who deserve a place to come together offline, discuss their work and stay on top

 of new issues, technology and techniques,” said conference organizer Robert Ward.

“Since 2010, the Dot Conf has provided exactly that, and a whole heap of fun besides.”

Turning rage into results

Social media campaigner Jon Morter, who helped Rage Against The Machine get to the UK Christmas No.1 spot in 2009, will also speak at the event.

His campaign not only outsold the previously unbeatable X Factor Christmas single, but broke a Guinness world record and raised more than stg£160,000 for charity in the process.

Morter is also the creator of the Condescending Corporate Brand page on Facebook, a how-not-to for big brands online.
