In 2011 National Americans for the Arts had a conference at the Louisville Marriott Downtown. We produced the live broadcast during which Scott Stratten spoke. Scott’s presentation was on social media, with a key phrase being ‘Share the Awesome!’ Throughout his presentation we frequently found ourselves saying amen to everything he was saying. He addressed false motives for tweets/facebook comments, how to present ideas online, and most importantly… if you don’t have something to say, be quiet. I find that frequently comments on twitter/facebook/google+ are just attention seeking random thoughts.
To hear an influential speaker (he works with Adobe and other major companies) address all of the problems currently being faced by so-called industry professionals, was beyond refreshing. I would highly encourage you to watch his presentation in totality.
