SOCIAL MEDIA WEEK/SMW is a:
” . . . global platform that connects people, content, and conversation around emerging trends in social and mobile media.
Delivered primarily through a network of internationally hosted biannual conferences and online through social and media media, SOCIAL MEDIA WEEK brings hundreds of thousands of people together every year through learning experiences that aim to advance our understanding of social media’s role in society.
Social Media Week was held for the first time in FEBRUARY 2009 in New York City, and was launched as a “distributed conference ,” with events taking place in locations throughout the city with organizations such as as the NEW YORK TIMES, WIRED, RAZORFISH and NIELSEN. Over 2,500 people attended over forty individual events, and thousands more participated online.
In February 2010, we expanded SMW from one to six cities, reconvening in New York while adding London, Berlin, San Francisco, Toronto and Sao Paulo. The multi-city evolution of Social media week attracted more than 7,500 attendees across 200 events, nearly all of which were made available for free to attendees thanks to sponsorship from a number of global brands, including MEEBO, MOTOROLA, VODAFONE, and PEPSI CO.
In September 2010, we made the conference biannual, adding Los Angeles, Milan, Bogota, Mexico City and Buenos Aires. In February 2011, the conference will revisit London, Paris, New York, San Francisco, Toronto, Sao Paolo and will expand to Paris, Rome and Hong Kong”.
SOCIAL MEDIA WEEK is owned and operated by Crowdcentric Media LLC.

check out: THE JOSH HARRIS KEYNOTE PRESENTATION – WILL TAKE PLACE at THAT TIME WINDOW on FRI FEB 11. THE MORNING STARTS OFF WITH A KEYNOTE INTERVIEW with the author of Program or be Programmed, DOUGLAS RUSHKOFF with ERICK SCHONFELD – followed by a KEYNOTE PRESENTATION by JOSH HARRIS, producer of the Wired City.
Josh’s presentation is titled:
‘JOSH HARRIS: The Toothpaste Manifesto: Netcasting in the Age of the Home Studio’.
“The advent of home studio (a television studio in the home) is comparable to the advent of home theater 20 years ago, hence the retail theatrical experience was displaced by the home theater just as the traditional television studios are about to be displaced by the home studio.
monitoring the home is refined. Just as security companies (e.g ADT) monitor the perimeter of a home – more vertical monitoring systems will track most aspects of daily life, the home (and the rest of daily life a la ‘Minority Report‘) will become a series of sound stages. so the desktop will expand to the counter top, the fridge top and of course the bath top.
The bath top as a theatrical venue. Featuring just in time brushing (ergo video chat with other people who are brushing their teeth at the exact same moment). If Cindy Crawford and/or Depp was brushing at 8:32am on Monday morning you’d be there.
The Crest Oral Hygiene monitor will watch your mouth. In the future of toothpaste we can count on an “oral hygiene monitoring system” run by Proctor and Gamble, Colgate or Google. If your child misses a tooth brushing session you can be sure that the Crest equivalent of social services will let you know you are a bad parent.
Crest (or more likely their ad agency) will build the “Crest Net studio’s” in order to accommodate the above. The key to their success will be to connect people to space and time. or in other words just-in-time chat video brushing that assembles the most engaging and entertaining people at the moment you start brushing.
The world that we live in will become a series of net studio sound stages who will elevate even the most mundane of daily rituals into engaging and entertaining “micro day parts”.
When the human condition reaches a critical mass of micro day parts a psychic fracture (the singularities effect) will occur. or in other words the brain will convert from a mono tasking to multi tasking mode. thus the hive, matrix, or borg are born.
When the singularities effect takes full force the human will no longer operate as an individual”.
