From GeoCities to Geolocated Cities: How the Future of the Social Web is Hyper-Local

The world wide web has come a long way since Tim Berners-Lee first connected us to each other in 1990. Yet for all the advances - the rise of social media, citizen journalism and the ubiquity of a college nerd named Mark Zuckerberg - we still don't enjoy the true connection and peer collaboration that we enjoy offline. This presentation will look at where we've missed opportunities and where we need to get to, to truly unleash the power and potential of the social web.
