I was stung by the whole Daylight Savings time switch today. I live in Arizona and am an Arizona native. We don't change our clocks with the Daylight Savings switch. My computer time doesn't change, and my cell phone doesn't change--which is how I mainly know what time it is. No biggie when I'm in Arizona, but today I'm in Austin for SXSW. So I'm now an hour behind my schedule :)
I'm headed over to the Social Media Breakfast SXSW and looking forward to hanging out with the lovely Kathy Mandelstein, an IBM Director in Lotus Marketing. She and I are working on IBM Software and organic social networking.
Before I leave, I want to share quickly the topics dominating my conversations at SXSW yesterday (Day 2):
My favorite SXSW session of the day was Danah Boyd's talk on public and privacy in social media. She's an ethnographic researcher--the type of thing I find fascinating and the stuff I adored in graduate school at RPI. However, my buddy, John Bosma, IBM Chief Architect in Social Computing, disagreed with her key recommendation around policy making at the end. I'll take a deeper dive on this discussion at a later time. I'm off to the breakfast.
