Funny how timing works out, but two interviews that I gave in March at SXSW have just been released.
The first — an interview with Abby Johnson for WebProNews — was recorded after my ActivityStreams talk and is embedded above. If you have trouble with the embedded video, you can download it directly. I discuss ActivityStreams, the open web and the role of the Open Web Foundation in providing a legal framework for developing interoperable web technologies. I also explain the historical background of FactoryCity.
In the second interview, with Eric Schwartzman, I discuss ActivityStreams for enterprise, and how information abundance will affect the relative value of data that is hoarded versus data that circulates. Of the interview Eric says:
In the 5 years I’ve been producing this podcast, this discussion with Chris, recorded at South by Southwest (SXSW) 2010 directly following his presentation on activity streams, is one of the most compelling interviews I’ve ever recorded. I expect to include many of his ideas in my upcoming book “Social Marketing to the Business Customer” to be published by Wiley early next year.
If you’re interested in these subjects, I’ll be speaking at Northern Voice in Vancouver this weekend, at PARC Forum in Palo Alto on May 13, at Google I/O on May 19, and at GlueCon in Denver, May 27. I also maintain a list of previous interviews that I’ve given.
