Christian Crumlish, Yahoo!
Designing for social interaction is hard. People are unpredictable, consistency is a mixed blessing, and co-creation with your users requires a dizzying flirtation with loss of control. Christian will present the dos and don'ts of social web design using a sampling of interaction patterns, design principles and best practices to help you improve the design of your digital social environments.
There's also a pre-meeting dinner in Palo Alto. Details on the BayCHI website at http://www.baychi.org/calendar/20100413/
