Where: Info Island Auditorium

Social networking tools like Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and others can be fun to use, but how are organizations and information professionals actually using them to connect, share and find information effectively? How do they find the time to do it? In this session we will look at the real-life practical applications of social networking tools, both inside and outside of the information organization. You’ll see real examples, and we’ll discuss issues and best practices around security, privacy and implementation.

Habló de lo que podrían aportar la sabiduría de las masas (wisdom of crowds) a un gobierno sensible y eficiente. Apoyó la utilización de foros abiertos para discusiones de asuntos de gobierno y que se utilice la moderación desde las comunidades (community self moderation) en lugar de un esquema de apertura total que pueda generar caos en la comunicación o la censura que pudiera ser ejercida por las agencias gubernamentales. La actividad estuvo muy concurrida. Si se genera una transcripción de la misma la compartiremos en este espacio.
