Uses of Twitter – how to go to a conference when you’re home sick

I was toying with the idea of going to the Oxford Social Media Convention when the dreaded Autumn Headcold struck.   I succeeded in slinking back to London and collapsing on the couch, and this morning staying upright during a Skype conference.  So how to participate in the conference without being there?

Thank you, Twitter and hashtag #oxsmc09 – I’ve had questions asked and answered, and started conversations with attendees and generally got the snarky backchannel on the panel discussions (which is the real fun at conferences).

All without any of you having to hear me cough.
