Impressions From SXSW Interactive 2012: Q&A With Stowe Boyd: From Cluetrain Manifesto To Social Business Reality

leave a comment »

Stowe Boyd is one of those people you wish you’d met long before you actually did.  I did meet him, about six years ago, when the Web 2.0 “revolution” was just taking root up at the MESH conference in Toronto (a conference I highly recommend, by the way.  Love my social amigos in the Great White North).

Stowe is one of those rare social media gurus who thinks and does — more recently he’s been trying to find time to do more thinking than doing — and for which we’re all the better off.  In our chat, Scott and I were all over the map with Stowe, starting with the Cluetrain Manifesto and moving our way through the shifting media landscape to the present day and the future of social business..and much, much more.

Check it out, you’ll be glad you did.

And Stowe, you can come back and chat with us anytime…but next time, we’ll try to scramble up a few cocktails.

leave a comment »

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?

Yes?

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.

The discussions are already underway and will go on around the clock until 8 PM U.S. Eastern time on Thursday, November 10th.

Go here to get started and make your contributions to this important discussion.
