Following up last year’s inaugural Graphing Social Patterns conference in San Jose, O’Reilly and Dave McClure have partnered to bring two installments of Graphing Social Patterns in 2008. The first, Graphing Social Patterns West, is being held March 3-4 in San Diego, CA. This year, the conference will focus not only on the business and technology of Facebook, but also questions surrounding the OpenSocial initiative and other social networking platforms. Benjamin Ling (Facebook), Amit Kapur and Jim Benedetto (MySpace), and Charlene Li (Forrester) will be delivering the keynotes.
