LinkedIn is a business social networking platform to connect with colleagues and people that you know on a professional level. For Hypertext 2010, we have created a LinkedIn group called Hypertext 2010 which you can join following this link.

Twitter is a free social networking and micro-blogging service that allows users to send "updates" (or "tweets"; text-based posts, up to 140 characters long) to the Twitter web site, via the Twitter web site, short message service (SMS), instant messaging, or a third-party application such as Twitterrific or Facebook.
After you sign up go to the Hypertext 2010 Twitter page and you click on the follow button to add the ht2010 id to your following list. You can share Twitter postings with others that may be following you through posts to the HT2010 Twitter account. You can tag Twitter posts using the tag #ht2010
in your messages so that they can be searched by others.
Also, if this is the first time you have ever heard of Twitter, here is the amusing and helpful tutorial, "Twitter in plain English".
Twemes (it stands for Twitter plus memes) is a site that aims to solve that problem by grouping Twitter tweets according to topic. Twemes searches Twitter for hashtags, key words marked with the # sign that let you know what each tweet is all about.
For example, when you tell everyone on Twitter about how much you enjoyed this post, you can mention
#ht2010 and Twemes will find your tweet, categorize it, and add it to an RSS feed of related tweets. You can find topics on Twemes either by searching or by clicking on words in the tag cloud, which works as an interesting visual display of what Twitter is talking about.
Many conferences like SXSW, WWDC and TechEd use this to update followers, both attending and non-attending. Here are two articles related to Twemes that you may find useful and helpful: Mashable, Downloadsquad.
FriendFeed is an aggregator of social networking services together for viewing the latest updates from people from Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google Reader and other services. It allows you a one stop site for viewing your friends' updates rather than having to go to each social networking site.
You can subscribe to the Hypertext 2010 FriendFeed here.
SlideShare is a free service for sharing presentations and slideshows over the web. Slideshare supports importing presentations from PowerPoint, OpenOffice.org Impress, and PDF files. The site implements most common Web 2.0 design and interaction patterns. Like many other social sharing services, users are able to add tagging, rate, comment, and embed content. Once a file is uploaded, it is visible to the public. Terms from slides can be searched via search engines. The user who uploads a presentation can choose to make the slide show available to be downloaded.
Slideshare is linked with Creative Commons so various attribution licenses are supported. In addition, these presentations can be retrieved at any computer without need for USB drives or other storage devices. In other words, presentations in Slideshare can be held before a conference for the presenters use and then reviewed afterwards by guests. Like YouTube , a presentation can be viewed in the small screen or take the full screen of a monitor.
Here is the Hypertext2010 page. If you would like to share your presentation either publicly or with certain individuals and would like this uploaded under the hypertext09 account, please let us know. Thanks!
If you want to upload to your own SlideShare account, then please use the tag "ht2010", you can then find all slides using these tags as http://www.slideshare.net/tag/ht2010
