Createasphere’s Digital Asset Management Conference in New York City is September 21, 22 and 23, 2011 at the New Yorker Hotel. Among the events during these three days are many presentations, panel discussions and seminars including:
Understanding the Connection of Digital Assets with Metadata: Filtering Data into Information into Knowledge
Reflecting on the Knowledge Pyramid, once we realize the amount of data there is available, and filter it to select the information we need as metadata, we learn how this data can help use assets with other content in the proper context. Hear how our panel of experts tackle best practices for metadata that empowers your organization.
This will be with the following panelists:
Sarah Berndt, NASA
Skiff Wager, SEW Consulting
John Dougherty, Hearst Corporation
Philip Spiegel, LAC Group on Assignment at ABC News

While seemingly more unimportant nowadays, business titles within an organization can sometimes explain a person’s functional role, authority, seniority and/or pay grade.
I have blogged about a variety of DAM titles used within the Digital Asset Management field, like Digital Asset Specialist (DAS), Digital Asset Management Manager (DAMMmmmm), DAM Director (DAMD), DAM VP or the title I have at this time… Digital Asset Manager.
Thanks to the efforts of Michelle Jouan as mentioned during Henry Stewart’s DAM Europe conference in June 2011, she is taking the initiative to start a digital asset management meetup group in London called London DAM. Michelle hopes for the group to be an informal forum for digital asset managers and others interested in the topic to get together to share ideas and experiences.
If interested in Digital Asset Management in London, you can join the London DAM group on Meetup.com and follow them on Twitter
Michelle is seeking a co-conspirator to run the group. If you are based in London (yes, in the UK) and would like to help run the Meetup.com site and the Twitter feed, find venues and schedule dates, please get in touch with her directly. She is a Digital Asset Management professional and a member of a few of Linkedin groups on Digital Asset Management as well.
This the first meetup group focused on Digital Asset Management outside of the United States. I believe there will be more in the world coming later on this year.
The United States currently has the following DAM meetup groups:
