Last session of the conference. And yes, another Schill recommendation. But this one I wanted to go to as well. We always have this problem — how to let people know something is private without the fear of “unauthorised” access.
Sadly, Kellan’s slides exploded just prior to the session, so we see an Apple-like presentation sans imagery.

Schill suggested I go to this one as well. Again, mostly because Schill knows the guy, but given how this is perennial problem for us as well, it couldn’t hurt to see how Flickr handles the problem.

Hanging out with Schill today, and he’s giving me some really great suggestions on what to see. Although the CM team did suggest something different, he’s saying we should see this one. Naturally, Schill knows the guy, but from his POV, this is a cannot-miss session.

Not much to report here. It’s a panel, and not a particularly interesting one, sadly.
On the bright side, this room has great connectivity!
Maybe it’s just me, but running keynotes every single day of a conference seems really silly, and waters down the value of the concept of a keynote. But I digress. Either way, this morning features Tim O’Reilly (again), Jonathan Schwartz (Sun Microsystems), Fake Steve Jobs (aka Daniel Lyons), Matt Cutts (Google), and Matt Mullinweg (WordPress).

The name partly disinterested me, but I wanted to attend this one because of the needs for social marketing that we haven’t really nailed down yet.

Definitely not my strong point. But I wanted to go to this given all the working in tagging as of late.

Only session of the morning. We break for lunch, then more sessions this afternoon. Sorry for all the delays in getting these posted. It seems that while the wireless strength to connect is pretty good (there are hubs everywhere), the pipe allowing 3,000+ connections out all at once blows. I swear there’s a router around here on fire trying to handle all that traffic.

Unlike other conferences I’ve been to, they seem to have a lot of keynotes. Strikes me as a little odd. The only real person who do a “true” keynote would be O’Reilly, since he coined this term in the first place. He did that yesterday, and didn’t really say anything different (at least from what I’ve read).

Debated between this one and learnings from Twitter. Felt that maybe this one might be more … insightful. Gotta learn to stop listening to my gut instinct.
