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.
