Rise of Social Commerce: Photos, Slides, Wrapups #RSC10

We’re thankful for the attendees and sponsors who came to our first event, Altimeter’s, The Rise of Social Commerce. I’ll use this post to link to all the blog posts, slides, and discussions from the event, so expect I’ll keep this post updated. (Blast from the past, see my former research predicting when social commerce would emerge –I was a year off, this space is fast)
