We Be Jammin’ @ The W3C Social Business Jam
Have you been wanting to get your two cents in on the broad topics that impact and influence the growth and uptake of social business?
Well, you now have your opportunity. IBM has partnered with the World Wide Web Consortium, the international body where member organizations and the public work together to develop Web standards, to host an online conversation among leaders in business, government, and technology about the current state of social business.
The W3C Social Business Jam will explore the future role that social technologies can play in improving the bottom line, and also how social technology should evolve in order to support business objectives.
A primary objective of the jam will be to cooperatively explore key trends and concepts in social business with an eye towards how social standards can facilitate business goals.
There are six core topics being explored in the jam, including the following:
- Identity Management for Social
- Mobile and Social
- Information Management
- Business Process Meets Social
- Seamless Integration of Social
- Metrics for Social Business
The jam will also feature a number of key thought leaders who will be hosting and participating in the online discussions, including Tim Berners-Lee, the W3C director and inventor of the World Wide Web, Yochai Benkler, Harvard Law Professor and author of The Wealth of Networks, Doc Searls, co-author of The Cluetrain Manifesto, and numerous others.
