Earlier in the year, I was invited to share my thoughts and observations on the state of and vision for socialized media and the networks that connect us. Shot in a mobile studio outside of the Austin Convention Center during SXSW09, I joined Gary Bolles to discuss the theory that ideas are the “ties that bind” us in social networking – over relationships.
In the era of Web 1.0 and instant messaging, we assumed, in many cases, alter-egos rather than embracing full transparency. After all, interpretation was pervasive. We added only those contacts whom we knew, both professional and personal. Now however, we find ourselves following those we know and those we wish to know. We are forming contextual networks based on shared themes, interests, passions, beliefs, and ideologies and it is transforming how we interact and establish relations and relationships online. We now willfully share ourselves with those online and in return, we’re encouraged by reactions and empowered through every new connection we earn.
