I am speaking on Friday at the Value Networks Community Cluster about Identity. The theme is Presence 2.0: Rise of Living Networks.
I did not make up this Copy describing the even but here it is:
We are in the throes of a major revolution in collaboration, community, business, the environment, economics and civil society. Web 2.0 and Enterprise 2.0 are ushering in a new network era. A deep social reorientation of work and wealth creation is in play. Prosperity is achieved through deliberate pursuit of diverse relationships. It is positively critical to nourish and nurture your links and flow paths through periodic, same time, same place collaboration and periodic transorganizational collaboration. These key relationships are further developed and optimized through ecologies of living social networks. Today we have an enormous capabilities infrastructure for social network applications. Fact is, these innovations still depend, in large part, and on many levels, on well-developed personal relationships.
Enterprise 2.0 Presence and Identity: The Rise of Living Social Networks will examine rapidly expanding, hyper-connected social network services, programmable webs and socially-mediated, knowledge-based business activities. New device-based social networks, an IPv6 address space of 3.4×1038, geocoding, pervasive computing, collective intelligence networks and, above all, the importance of collaboration to everything, has fundamentally and permanently altered they way we learn, work, play and thrive. Living social networks are making an enormous impact to the environment, wealth and well-being. Specifically, living social networks are becoming critical to all business. They are the critical value paths essential to corporate performance, business excellence and civil societies. For example, live, real-time communications such as IM, VoIP and mobile are becoming far more emergent and social. Simultaneously, asynchronous social networks applications like blogs, wikis and email are becoming far more real time.
