On the 3rd day the first session at GSPEast was a technical overview of "OpenSocial + Google App Engine" by Patrick Chanezon , Paul McDonald of Google. I met Patrick after the session and we had a nice chat. Open Social and Google App Engine along with Friend Connect are some of the Social Media initiatives that Google has undertaken. I hope Patrick's job as a Evangelist will bring him to back to the DC area in September. If it does I am looking forward to organizing a local meetup.
Here is the video of my interview with him.
Here are the slides he presented at GSPEast posted on his blog : http://wordpress.chanezon.com/
