Drupal has quickly become the preferred platform for Lifestreaming; a time-ordered record of an electronic life updated either through a direct feed or by aggregating online content such as blog posts and social network updates. Emerging geo location tools are giving rise to the geoblogging revolution and adding yet another layer of metadata to these content rich lifestreams.

This session is for anyone with an interest in integrating social media into their websites. From creating the ultimate personal portfolio site to developing a multi-contributor citizen journalism portal, we will review the techniques to get it deployed quickly in Drupal.

What will be covered:

* Integrating social content via cck & embeded fields
* Automatic importing via FeedAPI and FeedAPI_mapper
* Attaching location context via location and GMap modules
* Importing social geolocation data via MachineTagsAPI and Geotagging modules
