A few weeks back I was part of a panel at North Shore Web Geeks which they titled The Great CMS Debate.

Unfortunately Jake Goldman was ill and couldn’t make it, so Christine Greene agreed to step in and moderate in my place, while I represented WordPress in Jake’s. (See also Trev’s iPhone sketches of myself, Jay and Marc – he was unable to get Tom).
It was a fun night – I’m not sure I represented WordPress as well as I might have with a bit more prep. (On the security question in particular, see Brad Williams’ presentation from WordCamp Boston.)

Happy to announce (a bit late, I suppose, in that the event is sold out - though folks coming who don’t get to see the debate can still join us for networking and beer) that I’ll be moderating the Great CMS Debate this Thursday, Feb 25th, 7:00pm, upstairs at The Grog in lovely downtown Newburyport.
The event will be hosted by North Shore Web Geeks and sponsored (as in some free beer) by The Atom Group.

At this week’s North Shore Web Geeks meetup, Leslie Poston of Uptown Uncorked and Mashable gave a quick presentation on how to manage your online identity.

You can find her own recap here (with slides). Here’s some random notes I jotted (on my phone to evernote) I found interesting:
Don’t try to actively manage identities / profiles / updates on the 600+ sites out there. Don’t let your profiles rule your life.
Instead, choose just three: she chose Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter. Why? Those are the ones which seem most useful to her for locating clients, getting key news updates, and keeping in touch with friends. Your three may vary.
