Program of the session on Audio Search and Directories

Search_sig_audioThe program of the inaugural session “Audio Search and Directories� of the Search SIG is now complete. Jeff Karnes, who leads product management for Media Search at Yahoo!, is the latest addition to the “Podside Chat�. Before Yahoo!, Jeff worked at Virage, a pioneer in Audio search, so we’re glad to have him join Ev “Odeo� Williams, Eric “� Rice, David “Loomia� Marks and the host of the evening, Doug “ITConversations� Kaye.

As a reminder, the session will take place on Wed Sept 14th at Yahoo’s HQ (701 First Avenue, Building C, Room 5 in Sunnyvale, CA), and will promptly start at 7PM (registration from 6:30PM on). Attendance is free for SDForum members, and charge is $15 for non-members – paid at the door.

Here is the final agenda:

6:30-7:00pm – Registration / Food & Drink

Note: at the end of our meeting, we will provide audience members with the opportunity to make very QUICK 30-second announcements of community geek benefit. however, if you exceed the time limit, you WILL get the hook 😉
