  • The Secret Lives of Links

    by Jared Spool

    Links are the molecular bonds of our web sites, holding all the pages together. They are the essence of a web site.  Yet, what do we really know about them? If you create great links, your users easily find everything they need on your site. If you do a poor job, your users will find your site impossible or frustrating. We never discuss what truly makes a good link good. Until now. Jared will show you the latest thinking behind the art and science of making great links. Join him for this entertaining and amusing look at the secret lives of our site's links.

    At 3:30pm to 4:30pm, Saturday 10th March

    In Ballroom D, Austin Convention Center

  • Net Smart: How to Thrive Online

    by Howard Rheingold

    In order to thrive online as individuals -- and for the health of the online commons -- we need to understand literacies of attention, crap detection, participation, collaboration, and network awareness. I believe that the critical uncertainty about the future value of the Web depends on whether a sufficient proportion of the population learns these skills. So I've written a book that I want to be well-received by the knowledgeable and given as a gift to the less knowledgeable. Slated for March 2012 publication by MIT Press, I plan to launch the book at SXSWi.

    At 11:00am to 12:00pm, Monday 12th March

    In Ballroom EF, Austin Convention Center
