Video from the “How to Deal with Trolls, Spammers & Sock Puppets” Panel at Blog World Expo 2008

In November, I shared video from the “Avoiding Disaster: How Not to Use Social Media” panel at Blog World Expo 2008. The fact that I couldn’t get video of the other panel I was on, “How to Deal with Trolls, Spammers & Sock Puppets,” probably tells you how busy I’ve been! But, in any case, I’m sorry for the delay and the video has now been posted on

Thank you to everyone who attended to panel and to my fellow panelists, Rick Calvert, Founder of Blog World Expo & New Media Expo; John Chow of John Chow dot Com, The Tech Zone and TTZ Media and Jeremy Schoemaker of ShoeMoney and ShoeMoney Media Group.

Very cool Patrick! I haven't had a chance to watch the whole video yet, but will hopefully be able to finish tomorrow. As a regular reader of JC and Shoemoney, I thought it was great when I heard you had the opportunity to share a panel with them. I'm definitely looking forward to watching the rest of it.
