Normally I’m not a fan of social networks, I always seem to get bored quickly. The one time that I actually find myself using them however, is with conferences. The relevance of the immediately upcoming event makes it quite a bit more interesting, and I’ve found it a great way to find people at conferences that I’d like to meet and remember who I met afterwards.
For those attending PyCon 2008, consider joining the PyCon 2008 Crowdvine network. Some handy things to do after joining:
- Add a picture. That’ll help people put a name to a face.
- Fill out your profile. This will help people find you.
- Find people you want to meet. From their profile you can let them know that you are a “fan” or that you “want-to-meet.” Or you leave a comment with something more specific.
