@RepoSupport Miggie Picton – 7 steps to preservation readiness

@gmcmahon #or10¬†Preserving repository content: practical steps for repository managers – paper…¬†

@jisckeepit KeepIt @ #or10: good question on linking format actions and costs. As Miggie said, need to link LIFE3 on costs with risk analysis from Plato

@jisckeepit KeepIt @ #or10 Excellent talk, good story and well delivered, perfect timing. Well done Miggie

@jisckeepit Preservation @ #or10 session ends. Kudos #or10 organisers for putting this in the main auditorium. Good size audience for this topic

@jisckeepit Miggie says there were 140 people at her KeepIt talk. She counted from the podium. You thought the audience were watching the speaker?

Appended tweet, 14 July 2010:
@jisckeepit Lady in green-terrific stream of #or10 photos for Wed 7 July includes many of Miggie giving KeepIt talk Sense of scale
