Session

The Social Browser

Bart Decrem, CEO and Co-founder, Flock
Chris Messina, Citizen Provocateur., Citizen Agency

Date: Thursday, March 09
Time: 11:35am - 12:20pm
Location: Madeleine AB

Over the last ten years, the Web has evolved dramatically. At first resembling a large library of millions of interlinked documents, the Web is now a social space: a stream of events, people, and connections. The social web, in all of its faces (from LinkedIn to Flickr, from Craigslist to Del.icio.us) is here.

The success of Firefox has renewed interest in the web browser by users, opinion leaders, and industry, and Firefox has been successful at streamlining the web browsing experience while removing many of the nuisances of web browsing. Still, as the Web has evolved, web browsers have remained largely unchanged over the last decade.

In this session, Decrem addresses the following question: If we conceive the Web as a stream of events, people, and connections, how can we re-architect the web browser to provide an improved client environment for the social web experience? Attendees will learn how the web browser can provider better client-side support for social web services, including RSS, social bookmarks, photo sharing, and blogging.
