The EGU is Multilogue

This year at the European Geosciences Union General Assembly there’s more formal engagement with social media than in previous years.

Blogging
There’s an official blog (that you’ve already found!). This will contain a mixture of information about the General Assembly, highlight particular sessions, and news, amongst other things. Ideas for contributions are welcome, let us know in the comments or via email. It’s not going to replace any existing information outlets such as the Daily Newsletter but complement them.

We’re putting together a blogroll of bloggers discussing issues related to the EGU General Assembly 2010. These are not EGU sanctioned blogs, rather a resource helping attendees know what is out there. If you have a blog (individual or group) please submit your blog details to us. The blogroll will be published before the General Assembly.

If you’re planning on blogging at the European Geosciences Union General Assembly there is free (unsecured) wireless internet throughout the General Assembly venue; plug points are available throughout the building. International plug adapters can be borrowed from the Austria Center Information Desk for a deposit.

Twitter
There is an official twitter feed @egu2010 which will contain information on key events during the General Assembly. If you’re tweeting about EGU 2010 please use the hashtag #egu2010.
