*Social Design Patterns*
In the first half of the session, Erin and Christian will present a family
of social web design principles and interaction patterns to help user
experience designers and strategists grapple with the social dimensions of
their products and services.

In the second half of the session, we will invite the audience to learn
about designing social interfaces through an interactive, collaborative, and
competitive game.

prefers to describe himself as a pattern detective. He’s a design evangelist
on the Yahoo! Developer Network team and helped develop the Yahoo! Open
Strategy. He has been participating in, analyzing, designing, and drawing
social interactive spaces online since 1994. He is the author of the

Life (Sybex, now Wiley, 2004). He co-hosts the blog conference on the Well
and is mediajunkie on Twitter. He has spoken about social patterns at
BarCamp Block, BayCHI, South by Southwest, the IA Summit, Ignite 2 (SF Web
