Join us for a Twitter launch with Rob Hopkins on Thursday, October 13, 2011. Rob will be available to answer questions about himself and the Transition movement between 9am and 12pm EST (that’s 2pm – 5pm local time for Rob in the UK).

Can’t make it? Don’t worry! You can still use the hash tag #TTComp to post your questions any time. Rob will be answering the questions during the session, and then we will share a transcript of the entire thing, to make sure that nobody misses out.
