What separates "modern" social network systems from "first generation" social networks like Friendster (and, to an extent, systems like LinkedIn)? It's the architecture.
Join us as we explore how current systems "design for social sharing" with Rashmi Sinha, cofounder and CEO for SlideShare. Slideshare is the world's largest community for sharing presentations and documents. SlideShare is growing rapidly (more than 18 million monthly uniques) letting everyone from marketers, conference speakers and academicians share presentations and connect with others. Rashmi has a PhD in Cognitive Psychology from Brown University and did research on search engines and recommender systems at UC Berkeley. She is a frequent speaker at conferences such as Web 2.0 Expo and Future of Web Apps. She writes a blog at rashmisinha.com about running a startup.
Denise Howell is a seasoned appellate and intellectual property litigator based in Los Angeles.

Howell coined the term “blawg” and helped pioneer podcasting for lawyers. Microcontent obsessed since 2001, she is frequently quoted in the media on legal issues involving intellectual property and technology law.
As part of our special track at Supernova 2009: Real Time Flow, co-hosted by BT, we are engaged in exploration of the shift from a web of static pages to real time streams of interactions. (Last year, our innovative Open Flow track considered the technologies and practices that allow information to move freely between users, websites, and organizations. In the months since then, many of the ideas that were radical then have gone mainstream.)
At Supernova 2009, we’ll address the next step: making use of open data flows in real time. As part of our continuing coverage of this phenomenon, Friday’s Network Age Briefing call will be with Tantek Çelik, who is the moderating the Real Time Flow track at the conference. Join us!
Can we still have “privacy” in the Network Age? How do individuals, as well as services such as Craigslist, Facebook and Twitter, protect themselves and their information online? What can we do about it, if anything? Join us on November 4 to discuss “Privacy and Data Security in the Network Age” with noted expert Samir Jain.
