    2. 2. UNIVERSITY2013.URBACT.EU/WELCOME Hello! Delighted to be invited to join you in Dublin, and very much looking forward to meeting IRL – for those who haven’t seen this via Twitter’s 140 character restriction, that’s “in real life”  If you’re hesitant or cynical about social media, please know that when I was about to leave the corporate world for start-up I had a dozen connections in LinkedIn and had never used Facebook or Twitter. Who would have thought – from Facebook novice, to social media CEO? I love your slogan “Connecting cities, Building successes” and your focus on collaboration and community. Social media is all about joining the dots, to find and engage with contacts and conversations of relevance. There’s great congruence between what URBACT does and what social media can do. I’m looking forward to exploring how to make more of the opportunity with you. For those who already use Twitter, I’m @LindaCheungUK and the Summer University hashtag is #URBACT2013 – tweet soon?!
