Amazing keynote speaker, academic and researcher for Microsoft. My fave recommendation - follow people you aren't like on Twitter. Open your brain. Here's 3 ways to experience it yourself:
- An article: Social Privacy in Networked Public's: Teens' Attitudes, Practices, and Strategies, with Alice E. Marwick: This paper examines how teens understand privacy in highly public networked environments like Facebook and Twitter...we discuss the implications of teens' practices and strategies, revealing the importance of social norms as a regulatory force. http://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=1925128
- A YouTube presentation: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cB_D6FE9z-Q

As always, David Kelly acts as curator so you can get the sense of every session at the conference through the Twitter Back Channel. He's putting the finishing touches on that as you read this, but here are samples http://sco.lt/5T7V4b , Follow him at @LnDDave
In addition, Coline Son Lee and Jay Levin tweeted during my PM for Learning Professionals workshop. Find these pithy quotes by searching on @nolecture.
Jane Bozarth, Social Media Diva
ASTD placed Jane and I next to each other for the pre-conference workshops, likely not the best risk mitigation ever. We created tag lines for each other: for her "Lions and Tigers and Jane, OH MY!"; for me, "Your Brain on Lou". Happy Birthday to her and new tat. Check out a great posting from Jane next week.
Best SWAG - Free Zebra scarves! Richard - can I have one!?!? Check this cool tool out: ZebraZapps has partnered with the eLearning Brothers to produce high quality photographic character packs available in the Gadget Shopp.Starting at just $3.50 you can choose from several multi-pose sets of unique characters.
Beginning the conference with automated announcement "Please turn off all your cell phones and electronic devices. No flash photography". CEO Tony Bingham quickly eliminated this rule.
