Community blogs, tweets, and other social media featured at TNC 2010
 

Network and application experts, end-users and corporate partners will share their views at this year's TNC, ultimately helping to shape the future of networking. For the first time ever, TNC is also offering online forums to support these live discussions and enable more ways to explore some of the technology and social implications of the emerging network lifestyles.

In addition to the successful live video streams, TNC participants can blog, tweet, upload pictures and videos, chat and debate on-line. By using "#TNC2010" on Twitter (tweets), Wordpress (blog), Facebook (chat, photos, videos), YouTube (videos) and Flickr (photos), you can participate in the online interaction, or simply follow what is being said.
