Are You a Digital Hoarder?

A session at SXSW Interactive 2013

Monday 11th March, 2013

12:30pm to 1:30pm (CST)

Do you have thousands of rich media files that you can't make sense of? Do you find yourself breaking into a sweat when you try to find a file? Are you frequently unsure which file is the latest version? Are you secretly hoarding photos, videos and digital files on your hard drive so none of your colleagues can find them? If so, then you might be a digital media hoarder. Don't worry, you're not alone. With the explosion of digital media assets over the past decade, there are hoarders everywhere. In this Core Conversation, Edward Smith of Extensis presents a five-step program to get your house of assets back in order and your organization on the path to recovery!
