Social Computing Symposium 2012: "The Public"
The Social Computing Symposium 2012 focuses on the changing nature of "the public,” and is held on the campus of New York University in the Interactive Telecommunication Program space on January 12-13. Since 2004, Microsoft Research (MSR) has sponsored an annual symposium on social computing that has brought together academic and industry researchers, social startups, writers, and influential commentators in order to open new lines of communication among previously disconnected groups.
Thanks to the stellar and organizing “committee”: Lili Cheng, danah Boyd, Mike Annany, Alice Marwick Liz Lawley, Brady Forrest, Clay Shirky, Clive Thompson, John Borthwick, Tom Coates, Dan O’Sullivan, and Dennis Crowley.
And special thanks to the outrageously wonderful group of people who took the time to come, present, and share ideas. We only wish we could include more people, so would like to share out the agenda for the event and recorded videos of many of the presentations.
