Today, I'm on two panels during the final afternoon of DNA2009 in Brussels. I'll be joining Laura Oliver (, Darren Waters (BBC), Katharina Borchert (WAZ) and Bart Brouwers (Spits) for a panel about twitter, moderated by Ben Hammersley and possibly being joined remotely by Jeff Jarvis.

Later I'm on an experts panel responding to questions about social media.

Follow it all on twitter…
