SXSW Interactive 2010: Smarter Social Media

with 2 comments

Thanks again to everyone who showed up yesterday during the LAST time slot of SXSW Interactive on the very LAST day to hear myself, Adam Lavelle, and our fellow speakers (the hashtag for my talk was #unsociablecompanies).

I called the attendees of the “Fast 15” session the “Green Berets” for having stuck it out so long, and considering we were stacked against Bruce Sterling’s always hilarious and sobering closing keynote, I figured we might only have a few of the Hilton staff stopping by to listen, but in fact there was at one point a line out the door!

Thanks very much for all the great conversation and questions afterward, and the always fun-to-replay Twitterstream.  I saw that a few of you mentioned wanting to have access to the slides, so I’m attaching them below as a PDF.  I’m also included a less-than-10-minute video recap of the session for those of you could not attend.

Expect more blog posts highlighting a number of additional podcasts that Scott Laningham and I conducted during SXSWi 2010, as well as closing day recap along with David Salinas.

For everyone I met and spoke with at the event, I hope you enjoyed SXSW 2010 and learned as much as I did, and I wish you all well on your travels home and your attempts to climb out from under the email pile!

  1. Todd,

    Really enjoyed your “Fast 15” presentation at SXSW. Can I persuade you to share the ppt file? Would love to re-read some of the points about the Smarter Planet initiative, it’s really impressive stuff. The sheer scale of the work you guys do at IBM is unbelievable.

    Hope to hear from you, and thanks in advance.

  2. […] others.  My favorite was a session called Smarter Social Media which featured Todd Watson (AKA TurboTodd) from IBM.  Among many other interesting stats, he mentioned that IBM has over 220,000 employees […]
