SharePoint Saturday Boston

All of this beautiful weather here in the Seattle area got you down? Why not join me at SharePoint Saturday Boston later this month? (Saturday, February 27th) These free regional events are a fantastic way to get in front of SharePoint experts and learn more about best practices and leading-edge business solutions. You can register here for the Boston event,SharePointSaturdaySmall being held at Microsoft’s Waltham Building. I’ll be speaking on “Metadata (and IP) Management in a Social Media World.” Here’s a quick description of my presentation:

Many companies planning upgrades to SharePoint 2010 are reviewing their social media strategies, as users are chomping at the bit to deploy and use the new, natively supported features in SharePoint 2010. But many administrators don’t fully understand the issues associated with managing the data created by these tools. The intent of this presentation is to walk participants through the taxonomy and governance (and Intellectual Property) implications of the new social media capabilities within SharePoint 2010 (and 2007), providing guidance and best practices on how to track metadata, align these tools with broader corporate content management strategies, and maintain manageability of their SharePoint environment.
