The End of Shame: or, Getting Over Oversharing

A session at SXSW Interactive 2011

Sunday 13th March, 2011

3:30pm to 4:30pm (CST)

Oversharing is over. Now we're told opening up online is the most valuable currency there is. What's the real value in relating the most painful, awkward, potentially humiliating parts of our lives on the internet? Is there a line anymore between authentic self-expression and savvy marketing? If The New Transparency is really what we're being sold, how transparent are we ready to be?

LEVEL: Intermediate
