Today (Saturday) I’ll be headed over to the soldout Play Conference being held at UC Berkeley, I’ll be on a panel with Google, Yahoo, and Mozilla discussing Asian internet strategies, I’ll be pulling what I learned from the many interviews I’ve done with CEOs, entrepreneurs, developers, strategists, and even analysts.
Monday, I’ll be at Visible Path’s event discussing how the social graph can be used to improve enterprises, knowledge sharing, and networking. Our panel “How to Apply Social Networks in the Enterprise” will include: Matt Beveridge of Motorola, Anthony Lye of Oracle CRM On Demand, Ross Mayfield CEO & Co-founder, SocialText. I’ll be applying my experiences running an intranet, it’s all very related.
I like Ross’s definition of a Blogalyst: “What’s a Blogalyst? Part blogger, part analyst and part catalyst.”
I was recently quoted for being bearish on an upcoming ‘scripted’ reality show that is to appear on MySpace. Scripted or ‘forced’ authenticity isn’t always successful on the web, what happened to the lonely girl show after it was found out to be a set with actors? People can sniff out authenticity quickly, the filters are set to ‘high’. I’d rather see an existing popular show start to integrate social features in it, rather than it coming the other way.
Next week is Nokia’s mobile mashup event on Thursday, although my schedule is filling up, I’ll try to swing by. The problem with living in the valley is that there are just too many events. Exactly how many? I started this list of just ongoing events in the valley.
Sometime next week, I’ll let you know about an upcoming webinar I’ll be on with the talented Seth Godin, stay tuned!
