This is the last meetup presentation of 2012. Next month we will be having our annual holiday party.

You're a blogger, you use WordPress and you own your blog posts. However, you also use other social media tools, but how much of that data do you really own?

This session will look at using WordPress as your 'Home on the Web', and how you can get control over your data. We will focus on using the Keyring plugin (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/keyring/) as a connection point to other services, and make sure you own as much of your own data as possible.

This session is for Beginners, intermediate users. Depending on the audience, Beau can get technically deeper towards the end.
