Stay networked. Get informed. Broadcast your projects.

For Open consultation let us show the power of collaboration

hello All,
I think that In don't need to remind you about the next "hot" event (in IG context of course ;) ) . and I think also that as people from developing countries we all understand the need of remote participation channels.
in order to highlight this and show an effective need and make our request unavoidable, we, Diplo-mates, can do it by using social media channels. social media? a common word which encompass tools that you use or can use everyday with easyness : facebook, twitter, blog,live blog etc.
the idea is to have willbeing volunteers (a pleonasm in diplo context!) to cover OC and they don't need to be present at Geneva. they can report progress and discussions in OC and make their own comments and sharing them with others. we need more perscpective and several sides!
so please if someone want to participate, just send me a message!
I will post soon how we will work (don't worry it will be short and direct), in the meantime if you have or you want to setup twitter account (twitter.com), you can "follow" me there twitter.com/rafik and I will be glad to help you to learn the basics (just few minutes )
for liveblog I will share the link soon and the how-to.
if you are blogger, it will be fantastic to write a post about OC to show how you enjoyed remote participation :)
for facebook, you can send me friend request if we are not connected yet (how is it possible to not be connected yet!) http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=656596563&ref=name

This is great, Rafik!
We are looking forward to have twitter, facebook and blogger friends getting together and having their say on the Open Consultations!
By the way, now you can also stop by at the Remote Participation Working Group profile in Facebook!
