We are running a panel session across multiple venues between four
guest panelists.

You can join using one of the two modes:

1) Active participation (connect via video and participate in
interactive discussion) - Requests for interactive participation will
be honoured on a first come, first served basis

2) View only and Twitter questions  (connect via video but your audio
is muted by default, you may ask questions via Twitter) - a Twitter
stream for questions will be established to allow for engaging with
the panel.

Sign up with http://twitter.com and in your messages, be sure to
include the hashtag #ozeconf. Alternatively, go to :
http://twitter.com/#search?q=%23ozeconf to view the question stream.

User generated content sites such as YouTube, Facebook, Wikipedia and
micro/macro blogging services (eg Blogspot, Wordpress and Twitter to
name just a few) have been driving record traffic demands and changing
the landscape of social media and online interactions across the
world. Join us for a panel discussion on how citizen journalists are
driving traffic patterns across research and education networks such
as AARNet.
