VMworld 2011 (Las Vegas) is fast approaching and VMworld tweets and blog postings are building momentum. To help collaboration and exposure for these social media efforts at the conference, we have created wiki documents on VMworld.com for Twitter and Blogger contributor lists.


VMworld attendees and non-attendees who will be contributing tweets or blog postings for can add themselves to these lists.  These lists are available for the community to view and share or to use for meet-ups and attendance checks at the conference.  We will also use this list of contributors to enable feeds of VMworld content on VMworld.com and at the conference.
