Hi, I’m Kirsty McGill and I will be the official live blogger for this year’s event. I will be twittering as @iwmwlive and lurking around with a Flip camera to ask people for interviews.

I am a digital writer, with a particular interest in social media. I met Brian Kelly through my work promoting the use of social networking tools in customer relations at Bath Bus Station, where I managed a portfolio of services to help passengers – including a popular Twitter feed. Since completing this project I have been investigating other creative uses for social media. You can find out more about my work at my website.

This is my first IWMW event and I am really looking forward to meeting everyone and tweeting with those who are participating from afar.  We’re going to be trying out several things to help amplify IWMW 2009, which will hopefully be both interesting and useful – so let us know what you think.  

See you there or online!
