Topic: Sales, Marketing, and Business in the Facebook Era
Last decade was about the World Wide Web of information and the power of linking content pages. Today, it's about the World Wide Web of people and the power of the online social graph across sites. Facebook, Twitter, and Linkedin are rewriting the rules for customer engagement, interactions, and relationships. Social networking sites are changing everything we thought we knew about sales, marketing, and product development -- and empowering companies with new tools, insights, and ability to transform customers into true partners and your most effective sales force yet. Bestselling author and social networking expert Clara Shih will walk through the radical business transformation taking place and what sales, marketers, and professionals must do to thrive and win in the Facebook Era.

Come and listen to Clara, chat with her and participate in an engaging and dynamic conversation!

Missed the OpenSolaris Chat in Second Life?

There is a replay of the audio with slides of the recent Pro OpenSolaris Author Chat in Second Life.

Book by Harry Foxwell and Christine Tran

Pro OpenSolaris was written to demonstrate that you can host your open source applications and solutions on OpenSolaris, taking advantage of its advanced features such as containers and other forms of virtualization, the ZFS file system, and DTrace. Spend an hour with author Harry Foxwell and learn more about the latest release - OpenSolaris 2009.06, and features such as Crossbow.

Harry Foxwell is a system engineer for Sun Microsystems Federal, Inc., specializing in operating system support (Solaris, OpenSolaris, and Linux). He is also an adjunct professor of computer science at George Mason University, where he has taught, among other classes, operating system courses based on OpenSolaris. He has also written several book reviews for ACM’s Computing Reviews.
