Please signup for Twitter and participate - you can delete the account after the meeting.

You can tweet during the town meeting to contribute a comment or a question. Tweets will be

  • displayed during discussion time
  • collected for working groups and as input for the white paper

This is a mechanism to deal with limited discussion time and allow a broader audience to provide input. If you want to ask a question or comment, and there is no time in the discussion session, please just tweet.

Tweets must be respectful.

The tweet wall will look like this:
