  • Social + Location + Mobile = The Perfect Beer

    by Terry Lozoff, Melani Gordon, Mike Schneider, John Vajda and Hanna Laney

    How can the Foursquare-ification of our world change the way we get access to our favorite products to explore and discover new ones? What can brands learn about highly engaged users in niche markets, like beer enthusiasts, who use social networks and check-in services? This panel will focus on: Conversion/ROI: How can businesses in beer and other niche markets tap into the passion of consumers to find successful paths to conversion. Data: The importance of meaningful (semantic) data vs unstructured (not meaningful) data and how this information plays an important yet unique role for consumers, brands and vendors in a niche market like the beer industry. Decisions: How key data points can drive critical business decisions in niche markets like the beer industry. User Behavior: What we (marketers, product developers, businesses) can learn from highly engaged users in a niche market with these specific interests.

  • How to Build Privacy By Design into Web and Mobile

    by Tarik Kurspahic

    Building great online and mobile products is hard enough with a small team and limited resources, so why add to the difficulty by embracing “privacy by design” principles? With so many free, easy web tools available and an “everyone else is doing it” mentality, why take time to create extra user controls and transparency? The reality is your users are starting to understand the issues and will soon demand it. You should demand it too. But most online tools compromise user privacy at some level, and almost none provide the new benefits that result when privacy is baked in from the start. So, what to do? You can build your own tools, requiring time, skill, patience, and functionality trade-offs; pay a third party for their tools; or adapt open source solutions. Or you can shrug your shoulders and roll the dice... In this session, learn how the CTO of Personal, a private personal network and data vault service, has built privacy into the company’s DNA and how you can too.

    At 12:30pm to 12:45pm, Sunday 11th March
