            All the cool marketing kids want one. Those in the know want their clients to sign off on one. Those who’ve done it once want to do the next one. Alternate Reality Games motivate people to spend hours solving their mysteries. Do they reach people in a bold new way, or do they narrow down to only a loyal few? Do they work as a marketing tool? Discussion. Debate. Resolution?

Liza Sabater has identified these wired minorities as the “Digital Ethnorati” and in this panel we will explore how members of the new majority are changing the rules of political engagement with the net.

                                        Blogger Hugh MacLeod has espoused the notion of “The Global Microbrand” or a small, tiny brand that sells globally. The Global Microbrand is nothing new but with the advent of the Internet and blogging it’s much easier for merchents and even consultants to reach a global audience. For many, blogging is an avenue to creating apersonal Global Microbrand and getting off of the corporate hamster wheel. This panel will focus on the two most well known stories — English Cut and Stormhoek — showing how blogging has changed the rules and allowed small players to break out and play to a global audience.

What’s worked as a way to build bridges, to be hosts and guests, tourists and guides, educators, students, and friends? The flip side shows us invasions, cultural appropriation and exploitation. Bloggers from Latin America and elsewhere talk about translation, automatic translators, and bilingual blogging, marketing, ads, and tagging.

                                                    This panel discusses the incredible commercial and social potential of the Internet, and how those capabilities have been cast aside in favor of a time-sucking, productivity-sapping isolation engine that continually saps away some of the brightest minds from human interaction and relegates them to inhabitors of their second-life alteregos. Society used to work together to identify, occasionally ostracize, but eventually elevate the brightest minds among us. Now they’ll never leave the basement. Panelists include members of the gaming, political, dating, and educational communities, as well as a sociological historian.

In this panel we will discuss Concept and the importance it has on the end design. Does lack of concept, or do watered down concepts create stale creative/design? Is the lack of concept or the virtue of stale design have anything to do with over saturation? . . . or is saturation the reason for some of the best campaigns we see today?

Several initiatives are promoting free access to current knowledge, the latest scientific results, tools, reagents, commentary, and critique. Their success depends on building a heterogeneous community of individuals with interest, expertise, and/or common sense who can access the information AND contribute to it. The panel will discuss ideas and ongoing efforts to integrate the various initiatives.

This panel features dorkbot participants and project demonstrations to show how they feed into commercial applications, MAKE magazine, and MAKEfair.

Some people use the tags for personal information management — making things easier to find — and others use tag to discover certain kinds of content — such as pictures of puppies. But are people tagging the content with that use in mind? For use by others? Or just for personal use. This panel will consider trends in tagging, as well as the _possible_ social value it can bring. (This panel will not look at how cool and important folksonomies are; it will look at how people actually behave inside them.)

Panelists will debate how to market yourself and discuss your work with peers and media.

No non-profit group will ever be able to set rules and regulations that have a real impact because they don’t have skin in the game. Let’s stop arguing about CSS 3.0 and how 7% of the world uses Firefox. It isn’t getting us anywhere.

Need to access it via screen reader? Adobe could solve those problems by the next release if they saw the return on such an investment. Let’s acknowledge and start working through the real system to accomplish real goals.

This session will cut through the complexity and offer some advice, hints and tips for designers who sometimes need to get something printed, but lack the production knowledge to do so.

Online tools that make it easier to collaborate and serve broad array of constituencies include CMS, podcasts, blogs, wikis, RSS feeds and more. What are the consequences when accessibility is a second thought or left out entirely? What discourages developers from including accessibility as a foundational element of tool development?

Next-generation networks put objects at the center of interactions between people- pictures [Flickr], videos [YouTube], events [Upcoming]. A panel of experts will examine models of social interactions, e.g., viral sharing on YouTube, watercooler conversations around Flickr event tags. What types of interactions suit which context? How do these social interactions provide access to the long tail? How does taste-making occur on such systems?

In this session, experts in the field of Interaction Design and Usability come together to debate the merits of each approach and find the solutions that work.

No, tags aren’t going away but they are not a user-experience panacea. Are we folksonomic yet? Some ideas about the next frontier in malleable, emergent information architectures and classification schemes. Plus, how to apply the lessons of the global social internet to more niche oriented web application development projects. Tag pioneers, theorists, and skeptics beat a dead horse.

Libraries and museums owe a debt to individual dealers, collectors and packrats for saving illustrated Czarist plate books from the Soviets, and WWII letters from the trash-heap.

This panel takes a look at how music fans can acquire a capella vocals from commercial hits, create their own original remixes, then distribute these tracks via the web – all with the semi-tacit blessing of artists and labels. The panel will also discuss the impact this has had on the professional dance music community.

By providing device independance and platform independance, XSLT is perfectly suited for working with web services generating XML and XHTML. By being able to leverage the same technique on the client and server, developers can really get more bang for their buck. Panel moderators will show you how easy it is to do XSLT in Javascript, or on the server, as well as when to and when not to.

Yet its most innovative applications spring from homebrew non-game programs – e.g., art tools that export to Myspace, robust yet affordable robots, and music performance tools. Featuring such inventions by the DS homebrew community, this panel explores how popular hardware is exploited and whether its manufacturer can learn to embrace rather than thwart these unauthorized uses.

In fact, we have seen a number of trends taking shape that we believe are all pointing to the end of products. There is a growing realization that we are no longer designing single, stand-alone, centralized, static things, web sites, or systems. As the internet and digital networks in general become more ubiquitous, more distributed, and more integrated in our lives, we’re finding that it’s hard to find a “product” that is not also, or even mostly, a service. These service design projects generally involve multiple touchpoints or channels (i.e. the web, mobile devices, and physical spaces, etc.), a focus on long-term relationships, and the need for consistent experience across throughout. In fact, consumers expect more variety, more control, more interoperability, more adaptability, and more consistency in experience than ever before. This has serious implications for business, design, and development.

Will future generations get to see and hear their great, great, great grandparents long after their relatives’ meat bodies are gone? Is this a sci-fi step towards uploading ourselves into computers? Or just a fancy form of scrap booking? Also: Children today are being recorded and shared like never before. Is this a good thing? We all have embarrassing bath photos hidden in our parents attics?What is going to happen when hours and hours of everyone’s awkward youth is distributed and archived net-wide? Will future generations ever get laid?

It also means does it work in times of crisis for people of all abilities? When an emergency arises how should we get alerts out. Texting? E-mail? SMS? Why? Because we already know how to these technologies. Are they enough? This panel will discuss these options and why being proactive and adding emergency protocols to non-emergency applications is so important. Help before the problem happens. CAPS (Common Alerting Protocol) and PFIF (People Finder Information Format) are protocols to add on to existing sites for emergency response. Find out how programming to these standards, like will enable users to use them smoothly BEFORE a crisis hits. Learn how CAPS and PFIF are like RSS.

Now narratives can be unrolled and intertwined across multiple platforms (websites, banners, games, mobile, print, TV) to create richer, dynamic, and participatory experiences. This panel will highlight examples of multi-dimensional campaigns including recent work for Gametap, California Milk Processing Board (Got Milk?) and others. Panelists will also discuss the need for ethical, conscientious, and relevant advertising within new and emerging mediums, with an opportunity for dialogue with the audience.

What are they? Welcome to the world of Unconferences and informal organizations. Most of these Unconferences and groups are less than a year old but are shaking up the industry. They’re inexpensive, informal and require very little advanced planning. This panel will discuss the successes and failures of the new “unstructured” trend. Will also discuss how you can participate and even start your own group or unconference.

Creating places for these people can offer everything from personal rewards to financially success. Anyone can make community tools, but building a happy thriving community is much harder than just adding water. Listen and talk with your peers that have already carved out their own object-centric communities.

The fact of the matter is that some people’s voices are more important than others, and the democratization of communication afforded by this technology simply serves to clutter the airwaves with misinformation, plagiarism, and slanderous suppositions rarely read and even less often researched. Journalists find themselves in the unenviable position of trying to “outscoop” basement-dwellers who haven’t a code of ethics guiding their posts.
