I'll be in New York next week speaking at Personal Democracy Forum 2008. The title of my talk is 'When Worlds Collide: Social Media, Mainstream Media and Politics. In it I will discuss the value of large aggregates of social media data as a lens for understanding the political process and landscape. The presentation is very visual and I hope to have some version of it online soon. Readers of this blog will much of the content, but there is some new stuff in there as well!
