Last week, in At Defrag Conference, I wondered a bit about what I'd discuss in my presentation.
And I think that from there I can talk about the socialization of the Internet and tools/sites we use every day. But I can also go in a slightly different way, talking about the "internet-based tools" and "transform loads of information into knowledge", and how we (Yahoo) can be suppliers of technology and services at many points in that chain.
It turns out that I ended up doing something closer to the later of those two. The video from my talk is now available via YDN Theather and I'm pretty happy with how it came out--especially when you consider the uncertainty over what people at the conference would want to hear, the fact that I was right before lunch, and the fact that I'd never done this talk before.
I even managed to mostly stay within the alloted time.
There really isn't a strong message or conclusion other than "things are still in progress and not all sorted out yet", but that's pretty consistent with the discussions at the conference.
We shot a few other videos at Defrag too.
- Dick Hardt of Sxip on Perl, Mozilla, Open Source, Identity, and more...
- Phil Windley on government, information technology, on-line marketing, identity, and more...
A couple more will be online soon.
