There will be plenty of opportunity for networking with other Prosper members in between such entertaining and informational topics as the High ROI Lender Panel, Collections Practices, Leveraging Social Capital, Blogger Panel, Pricing Fundamentals: Earning a Risk Adjusted Return, API Uses and Pitfalls, and Managing Large Portfolios.

Steven Dubner’s blog is pretty darn good, of course. But let’s not forget his blog entry about Prosper!
