Dear attendee,

Please find here some information about IRC and social networking that 
may help you get more out of the MultilingualWeb Workshop in Pisa.


During the MultilingualWeb workshop in Pisa we will have people 
summarizing the speaker presentations in an IRC channel. These notes 
will be available in real time, and will be made available later from 
the multilingualweb.eu site.

This is particularly helpful for those at the workshop who are unable to 
hear the speakers, and those who struggle due to language difficulties. 
People who could not make it to the workshop can also follow the gist of 
the discussions, since this will be available on an open channel.

In addition, you can *contribute* to the channel while it is running.

Here are details of how to follow the IRC channel:

     If you have an IRC client:
     Join the #mlw channel on irc.w3.org:6665

     Otherwise use the web client:
     Go to http://irc.w3.org/
     You will be asked to provide a nickname.
     Choose something short.
     Next you are asked for a channel.
     Type #mlw
     You will see the conversation taking place in the main part
     of the page. You can participate by typing in the white line
     at the bottom of the page.

You can practice joining the channel before the workshop starts, if you 

You can see the (slightly cleaned up) IRC logs for the Madrid conference 


You are encouraged to tweet your thoughts during the workshop. Please 
use the hashtag #mlwpisa.

You can see tweets from the Madrid workshop at 

(We used #mlw. This wasn't unique enough, so you may need to hit 'Next 
page' a couple of times.)


If you take photos during the workshop and upload to Flickr, we suggest 
you use the mlwpisa tag when you upload. We will then try to link to 
those photos from the multilingualweb.eu site.

If you make information available using other social media channels, 
feel free to let us know and we'll see if we can link to that too.  We 
are also especially interested in tracking blog posts about the workshop.

See you soon in Pisa,
