Chris Miller's Birds Of A Feather Session at Lotusphere 2012
Securely Build Your Social Identity and Brand

Abstract: With so many places to post information, share locations, and create content, establishing identity online should be approached with security in mind. Branding becomes the final piece, after deciding what types of information you want to share and on which networks. Join this open dialogue with others that have real world exposure, both publicly and privately, to help answer the many questions you have about online identity and presence. If you are new, come hear about the starting blocks to securely create your identity and brand. Those that have been sharing online are encouraged to attend to share tips and knowledge and maybe even pick up a new idea or two.

Session GURU101: GURUpalooza!
Description; You've been basking in the knowledge that has shone down upon you from our tracks of experts all week.

But, as always, there are more questions than opportunities for answers. We're giving you one last chance to pick their brains - and that opportunity is known as GURUpalooza. Bring those final questions, comments and even a little bit of praise to GURUpalooza, and let's all have one more collaborative "geek fest" before we draw Lotusphere 2012 to a close!
