Collaborating with the Customer
It’s a new age. Every day, millions of people share billions of personal thoughts on Facebook, Twitter, and other social networking sites. But with every new technology, people find more reason to worry about privacy. In this optimistic talk, Jeff Jarvis examines the tension between privacy and publicness that is transforming how we form communities, create identities, do business, and live our lives.
"Mr. Jarvis’s speech was one of the most popular sessions at the forum this year; we even had to install additional chairs to fit everyone. People were very interested in the session because he talked a lot about Google, a topic that popular around the globe. He was a very engaging and witty speaker. Many participants named this session to be one of the most memorable sessions at the forum."
"Jeff's lecture was right on target. The content of his presentation was exactly what our staff needed to hear, and his laid-back and humorous style made this both entertaining and informative."
