    Yeah sounds very thought-provoking . . . I hope the blogging skill imparting part would also be substantive . . . This is a weak link for many of us who keep digging out stuff in the field . . . May be a couple of handbooks in PDF or how-to-do manuals can help too . . . Thanks for everything . . .

    Hi all… my name is Hani..although I was invited to the conference on short notice… but I have decided even earlier to take part on my own due to the fact that the issues to be discussed during the conferece sessions are of the main topics I write about… I appreciate the invitation and I look forward to benifiting from the enormous and diverse experiences of the participants…

    Hi everybody. It seems a great agenda. Very glad to be part of it. I am based in Brussels and I work for newswires, and websites specialised on European Union affairs. I worked two years on EU-Arab relations for the Italian newsagency Ansa. I am looking forward to share my experience and to hear yours.
    A presto,
