gsp east 2008Graphing Social Patterns East is quickly approaching June 9-11 in Washington, DC! O’Reilly and Dave McClure have pulled together a fantastic lineup as usual, with full days devoted to each the business and technical aspects of building on social platforms, with a workshop day to kick it off.

I’ll be moderating the Social Games for Social Platforms panel on Tuesday, discussing ways that new companies are creating viral and engaging social games on social networks. I’m excited to be joined by Shervin Pishevar, CEO of SGN, Siqi Chen, Co-Founder of Serious Business, Andrew Trader, VP of Business Development at Zynga, and Robert Balahura, Co-Founder of J2Play. (In case you haven’t heard, social games are hot!)
