People Like You and Me: Driving People-Powered Web Discovery

A session at SXSW Interactive 2011

Sunday 13th March, 2011

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

The notion of “social” on the Web is continuing to change as people look to connect more seamlessly online, no matter where they are. For the first time, the idea of an algorithmic-driven Web experience is challenged by a people-centric one where it is discovered through shared connections. People and interests define the next great organizing principle of the Web. This talk will discuss the evolution of discovery on the web--from directories, to search, to people--and what lies ahead.
