Our Social World

I’m taking part in Our Social World on Friday September 9th in Cambridge.

There’s an interesting collection of speakers and topics including Hugh who argues “marketeers are going to have to act more like techies and less like pony-tail creatives”. That’s handy, I’ve just had a crew cut so a pony tail is well beyond my reach.

Suw Charman is talking about Dark Blogs – what goes on behind the firewall. I’m intrigued by Julian Bond‘s idea of “The culture of the office memo”. Lee Bryant has some fascinating ideas about using social tagging – and applies them practially to improve understanding between “experts” and patients in the health system and elsewhere. I’m not sure if Stowe Boyd is going to make it , but it would be nice to meet the man behind Corante.

There’s lots more on the menu.
