FIR Speakers and Speeches: Shel Israel on social media trends

fir-ssShel Israel spoke at the Social Media Breakfast San Francisco East Bay on Friday, February 11, 2010. His talk focused on the dominant long-term trends emerging in the social media space. Shel co-authored (with Robert Scoble) Naked Conversations and more recently wrote Twitterville. He is a consultant who tweets at @shelisrael and blogs at Global Neighbourhoods.

The talk was followed by Q&A which is not included in this recording. The talk was recorded using a Marantz PMD-620 portable digital recorder set on a table near the speaker and using the built-in microphone, which didn’t pick up the questions (which turned into a dialog on privacy).
