Hi Guys. We look forward to seeing you tonight. I'll cover TechHui, how it was put together, and how to use it to your benefit based on your role (engineer, scientist, interactive designer, student, etc.) If there is time, we'll talk about how to combine Ning with Facebook, Twitter, Ooi and other widget platforms to quickly and easily create niche social networks.
