We live in a time of ceaseless and unrelenting change. This sentiment, repeated thousands of times in business books, blog posts, and board rooms over the last 20 years, is practically an article of faith. But believing that the world is changing—and knowing what to do about it as a web strategist—are two different things. What will the deep future look like? What impact will 20, 30, or 50 years of continuous disruptive change have on our businesses, civic institutions, and professions? How should our organizations move today to ensure that we’re ready for the future when it arrives? What efforts will endure?
In this provocative presentation, Michael Edson, the Smithsonian Institution’s Director of Web and New Media Strategy, will challenge us to think harder about the future and what it implies for day-to-day planning and execution within organizations. Edson will explore the changing landscape of web strategy, the unexplored potential of mainstream tools and services, and why sharing and caring should be cultivated as core business practices.

This interactive roundtable discussion is inspired by the THATCamp General Discussion format. Participants arrive to the session with questions, suggestions and are ready to use a variety of social media to tools to drive, document and share the discussion online in real time.
The focus of this roundtable will be to explore ways in which staff might incorporate uses of social media into the everyday work experience. The following questions will be addressed:
1. What are appropriate use cases for social media in everyday work?
2. What social media tools do you use to interact with colleagues, customers and execute daily work?
3. How could you incorporate social media into the fabric of workflow processes?
4. What policy barriers dissuade you from using social media in the workplace?
5. How do you deal with rights issues?
6. What is the benefit of using social media for your institution and your professional practice?
