Seattle, WA (PRWEB) April 19, 2012
Content presented at the Cloud Fair Seattle event this week will be hosted and indexed by social sharing service PaperShare and made available to all community members.
“PaperShare and Cloud Fair are perfect complements,” said David Greschler, CEO & co-founder of PaperShare, Inc. “Cloud Fair brings together professionals and companies that want to learn about the latest in cloud computing. PaperShare extends this by allowing these professionals to continue their interactions online by finding all the materials presented at the event and interacting with other professionals and organizations who attended the event.”
PaperShare announced that it has opened its cloud computing network, enabling its members to receive the presentations, papers, apps, white papers and videos produced for Cloud Fair. The channel dedicated to Cloud Fair content is located at http://www.papershare.com/g/cloudfair2012-seattle. While there, visitors can also meet and interact with event presenters, vendors and attendees.
“When we set out to select a site to host and distribute Cloud Fair speaker content, one of our options was to establish our own community within a general interest online community. But PaperShare came to us with a cloud computing community already formed, so it made perfect sense for us to partner,” said Kent Barnard, Director and Founder of Cloud Fair. “Their combination of technical focus on our vertical market and established community made PaperShare the perfect choice."
PaperShare community members can share content with connections across their social graph, including LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter. In addition, everyone in the PaperShare community will see which content other community members find useful and valuable. This gives members access to content evaluation from cloud experts beyond their individual social graphs, providing insights and connections that would be missed in other, more general social sharing platforms.
PaperShare is exhibiting at booth #40 at Cloud Fair. Stop by to find out more about how PaperShare can help you find great cloud content and connect with other professionals and companies in the cloud computing industry.
