Upcoming Appearances and Conferences

For those of you stalking me or trying to find out when my house is empty, here are some places I will be this spring:

Mark Fryenburg asked back to his speak to his class: CS 299 Web 2.0: Technology, Strategy, Community. I’m going to tackle personal knowledge management. After all, that is the reason that Compliance Building exists. I’ll be there on the afternoon of March 17. I did a similar presentation to this class last spring.

Rather than the marketing aspects of blogs and web 2.0 tools, I’ll focus on how they can help you as individual in accumulating the knowledge you need to do your job and develop yourself professionally.

Hopefully, I can open the eyes of these college students. Don’t assume that the digital generation knows how to use web 2.0 tools any better than you.

In April will be heading down to San Antonio to an ICI Mutual Conference to speak about social media and compliance.

My presentation will focus on the issues that investment companies and investment advisers will have in dealing with social media. This will be my first time in San Antonio.

On May 6,  I will be speaking at the Annual Conference for the Association of Legal Administrators.

My topic will be The Social Networking / Web 2.0 Revolution. I’m going to bring my experience as a lawyer, law firm client, legal administrator and user of web 2.0 to give a better understanding of the web can firms and ways that firms can manage the use of web 2.0.

On May 17, I will be down in Miami at Interact 2010: The Legal and Compliance Technology Forum.

I will be on a panel with Kathleen Edmond, Chief Ethics Officer of Best Buy and Janice Innis-Thompson, SVP & Chief Compliance Officer of TIAA-CREF. We will talking about governing social media. The focus will be on ways to monitor, manage and make the most of employee use of web 2.0 tools.

compliance-week_2010 From May 24 to 26, I will be hanging out at the Compliance Week 2010 Conference. I’ll be able to sit back and enjoy the great agenda and leading speakers from the industry and government. I had a great time at this conference last year and met some great people. So I’m going back for more.

There should be some great compliance bloggers there: Francine McKenna of re: The Auditors, Bruce Carton of Securities Docket, Tom Fox of Tfoxlaw’s Blog (he needs a better name for his blog), Alex Howard of SearchCompliance.com, and Compliance Week Editor In Chief Matt Kelly

For a change of pace, I’m speaking at Pax East on March 26 on Bringing up the Next Generation of Geeks.

In my spare time, I’m a contributor to Wired’s Geekdad. The Pax East panel will be composed of a bunch of the GeekDad writers.
