While a terrific presentation may take talent, making a good one is a
matter of science and practice. As generations of Toastmasters have
proved, anyone can do it. Veteran conference presenter Josh Berkus
will go over his tech talk tips in detail in order to help you improve
your presentation skills. Programmer and slide-slinger Ian Dees will
take on the specific topics of showing code to an audience and
composing your slides.
Speakers who are giving talks later in the conference are especially
encouraged to attend.

Want to find out what your friends were doing on the weekend? Curious which parties you aren't getting invited to? Wish you could contact that interesting person you met at a 3,000 person event, but you only got their first name? Want to know what your potential new employee really does in their spare time? Or do you just like data, and lots of it?
In this talk we'll learn some simple tricks with open source tools that can help you access a wealth of information from the largest collection of social data ever created. We will also examine techniques and practices to help control what data you expose to the techniques presented.
