My friend Dave McClure is putting on a conference that I hope to be participating in… Graphing Social Patterns: The Business & Technology of Facebook. It’s a conference for marketers & developers on how to build and distribute apps for the Facebook Platform. The conference will be held in San Jose, CA from October 7th-9th. Monday 10/8 and Tuesday 10/9 are the main conference sessions; an optional pre-conference workshop is Sunday, 10/7. If I’m able to participate, it’ll be on Tuesday.
A special discount of 30% off normal registration is available to my friends (you!) thru midnight tonight; please register using this link. I am not getting a cut from this – I’m just trying to help Dave with what is sure to be yet another successful venture for him.
This event is for both business executives & technical developers who want to learn more about the Facebook environment, and how to reach online communities using social networking platforms and applications. Conference keynote talks will be presented by Reid Hoffman, founder/CEO of LinkedIn, and Tim O’Reilly, founder/CEO of O’Reilly Media. Other speakers include representatives from Facebook, Microsoft, Slide, SocialMedia, RockYou, ClearSpring, Forrester Research, TechCrunch, VentureBeat, InsideFacebook, and Charles River Ventures, among others.
