This is a five minute lightning talk presented by Jim Lane, Director of User Experience for Clearspring Technologies, at the Web Intents Design Push on February 25th, 2012 in Brighton UK. Jim described the AddThis platform, how it works, what publishers look for in sharing tools, and design strategies to meet those needs. The goal of the presentation was to help inform exploratory Web Intents design sessions later that day.
