Yup, it’s that time of the year again: Level Up! Live!
Thousands of Filipino gamers will converge again at the World Trade Center for the biggest online gaming event in the Philippines. And of course the Multimedia team and I will be there to once more to live blog and live-stream the event.

Not only, but we’re also going to providing social media coverage of LU! Live 2009 — and you can be part of it!
If you’re on Twitter, please place the hashtag #live2009 on all your LU! Live 2009-related tweets. For instance, maybe you want to plug your guild’s booth at LU! City.
You may also add the tag LIVE2009 on your blog posts, photos (for instance, if you’re uploading LU! Live 2009-related pictures to your Flickr accounts), and videos to share your Level Up! Live 2009-related content and make it easier for other Internet users to find them. We’ll also be able to send more people to your site because we’ll be showcasing posts with the LIVE2009 tag during the LU! Live 2009 live blog and on the Level Up! Portal after the event.
