The MIX '09 conference site has announced the panel I'll be moderating at this year's conference in the post titled Opening the “Walled Garden” of Social Networks which is excerpted below

As social networking sites become more and more numerous, and consumers are looking to simplify their online lives,  providers are scrambling to define the path forward for social network aggregation.  Join us at MIX for a special guest panel on “Standards for Aggregation Activity Feeds and Social Aggregation Services”. 

Check out this killer line-up of panelists - big names and leading companies in the online and social networking space:

Dare Obasanjo (Moderator) – Microsoft

Kevin Marks – Software Engineer at Google; formerly principal engineer for Technorati; one of the founders of Microformats

Marc Canter – CEO at Broadband Mechanics; founder of Macromedia

Monica Keller – Dev Manager at MySpace; formerly Architect at SumTotal

Joseph Smarr – Chief Platform Architect at Plaxo

If you haven’t registered for MIX09 by now, what exactly are you waiting for, an invitation?  Consider it delivered.

This should be a fun panel and if you'll be at MIX and are interested in where activity streams and social network interoperability is going then you should attend.

PS: I believe John McCrea may be replacing Joseph Smarr on the panel due to scheduling issues.
