It’s not quite my normal topic – development aid – but here I am in Paris, sat blogging about the OECD’s Global Forum on Development. Why? Well, in short because I was asked. Linda Warnier who works on online communications for OECD is someone I’ve worked with in the past in Brussels, and some of the ideas she implemented in EU online communications she is applying to the OECD. I was willing to come to Paris to participate in the experiment. My expenses to come to Paris were covered by OECD, but I am not being paid to be here, and I will be blogging and tweeting on #OECDgfd throughout the one and a half days of the event. As well as on Twitter, discussion can be found on the OECD site here, and Wisembly here. Video live streaming is here. I’ll also blog anything especially significant!
