UX of advertising at BayChi tomorrow

The upcoming BayCHI panel on UX of Advertisinglooks really cool! A great line-up of folks:
Jeremy Liew, Lightspeed,
Ted Rheingold, Dogster,
Joe Hurd, VideoEgg,
Heath Row, DoubleClick
are going to be talking about the user experience of advertising. It’s been on my mind a lot lately. I’m interesting especially in whether Flash can be used to make advertising LESS annoying.
Plus the Dogster guy will be there. Dogster cracks me up, the fact that a social networking site for dogs is a massively succesful site is probably a sign of the apocalypse.

Happy Birthday SlideShare!

SlideShare is one year old today. We’re celebrating in typical web fashion: messing with our logo.

I’m really proud of everything our team has been able to accomplish over the last year, and incredibly grateful to all our users for their enthusiastic support. We never expected it to get this big, this fast, and we’re now solving all kinds of cool scaling issues thanks to the traffic we’re getting, even as we work on adding super-duper new features.
Thanks to everybody who helped us get here (you know who you are ;->).
