Getting in training for the EGI Tech Forum in Lyon – will you be there?

With only 4 days to go before the office packs up and heads for Lyon for the EGI Technical Forum, the last minute preparations are in full swing...

To flex my social media muscles ahead of the event, I am in sunny Belgrade for the TERENA TF-CPR meeting ( for some very lively training on all things Twitter, Facebook, Flickr etc. As well as getting the low down on how to track your online clout via tools like, we also tested out just how fast and furious live blogging can be, in an exercise on breaking a serious news story online. Not quite as hair-raising as the News of the World phone hacking debacle, but Tweeting a mile a minute certainly got the adrenalin going for most of us.

So as ever, our dissemination teams at EGI and e-ScienceTalk will be putting our skills into practice during the Tech Forum to bring events to you live as they happen. You can follow us on Twitter at and (#egitf11), plus we'll be blogging here on GridCast and at, posting videos at and uploading the photographic evidence to Use the egitf11 tag if you’d like to join in… we will be showing the photostream live at our booth so we invite you to be imaginative!

See you in Lyon!
