Moving Toward A Techno-Sustainable Lifestyle

 When I first came to Web Of Change in 2005, I had never uploaded a video to YouTube. You probably hadn't either. YouTube did not officially launch its service until November of 2005.  Flickr launched 18 months earlier, and was acquired by Yahoo! in March of 2005. I started uploading photos in April of 2005. Twitter wasn't publicly available until July of 2006, though it didn't start to take off until SXSW Interactive in 2007.

Ignite and Short Form Story Telling

This year I have the honor to coordinate the Ignite event on Thursday night at the Web Of Change. If you've not yet experienced Ignite, let me take a moment to explain the format: each speaker has 5 minutes to present a talk consisting of 20 slides timed to auto advance every 15 seconds. The talk is usually presented without notes. Ignite events happen in hundreds of cities around the world and at conferences. Ignite topics are interesting, fun, quirky. The motto is "Enlighten us, but make it quick."

Feast your eyes on the WOC12 agenda!

I am very excited to present the agenda for Web of Change 2012!

The 2012 Fellows will be sharing more detail on these juicy topics over the coming weeks, but we wanted to share a sneak preview of what's to come at this year's gathering.

There will be three plenary sessions:
