I really can’t compare this conference to any other I’ve ever been to. The session topics are all over the map, some are similar to those you’d find at something like web 2.0, some are completely different.
The first afternoon session I attended was on identity and privacy online, I’m guessing pulled together after yesterday’s fantastic session. Some of the people here are the same as those in yesterday’s session, but a lot of them are different, with very different perspectives.
One of the big questions we keep coming up against is whether or not it is a good idea to maintain two online personalities, one public, one private. Some women here very much do, I personally think it’s impossible. For those that do maintain the second identity, how do you live behind it when so much you do is attached to your name or personal information?
The second, and final afternoon session was mine, on “how to launch a product.” I have had a lot of good (and pretty bad) experiences with product launches, so this was pretty much me just recounting all the things to remember when launching a product, and all the things that can go wrong.
Notes from both the sessions I gave will be online at shesgeeky.org – the ones from yesterday are there, the ones from today still need to be written by me (teehe – to do tomorrow).
This was a really fun conference, and a great two days.
