I had the pleasure of speaking with Chris Pirillo pre-Gnomedex about a variety of subjects, some light, some humorous and one very serious – the topic of bullying and the attendant suicides. During this discussion, I also shared my thoughts on how we as a collective society need to step up and effect change in the immediate future. I do hope you will come and listen to my talk on the Gnomedex stage at Seattle Interactive conference on 2 November 2011 at 1400 hours (2:00pm).
The presentation is titled: “Unintended Consequences”
Abstract: Our social interaction has morphed to an always-on, always-available existence. Technology now allows us to reach out and touch one and other at will on a global basis. While most of this interaction is cordial, not all, some become overwhelmed and this leads to unintended consequences – Bullycide.
While time may be limited, we can and should step up and make a difference – I hope to see you at Gnomedex.
Here is my piece on,
Thank you for your time.
