    10. 10. I designed and built an enterprise CMS for Palm between 2002 and 2005
    11. 11. but I am not just a geek entrepreneur or a marketing wanker
    12. 12. I think holistically
    13. 13. so why am I here today?
    14. 14. I am also a frustrated Drupal Customer (or rather, a wannabe customer)
    15. 15. Social Media Club’s (and my) experience with Drupal...
    16. 16. More on this later, let’s talk about Social + Media
    17. 17. social media is not the thing, as much as it is what we do with it, SHARING media, socializing it and connecting through it
    18. 18. it’s more art than science @davegray
    19. 19. Social Media, A Brief History
    20. 20. Social Media, A Brief History • Cave Paintings • Hieroglyphs • Written Word • Guttenberg • Radio • Television • Mimeograph • Web • Weblogging • Social Networking
    21. 21. point being, all media is, or can be SOCIAL
    22. 22. the ‘democratization’ of communications technologies is advancing at an ever increasing rate (just ask Ray Kurzweil)
    23. 23. this is good, and its also challenging (especially for early adopters)
    24. 24. So let’s think more critically about what we have learned from Social Media so far
    25. 25. But first, let’s look back to dotcom era
    26. 26. But first, let’s look back to dotcom era •The Three C’s • Content • Commerce • Community
    27. 27. The framework for a social operating system 4
    28. 28. The framework for a social operating system •The Four C’s • Context • Communications • Collaboration • Connections 4
    29. 29. Success using this framework is values based
    30. 30. Success using this framework is values based • The Social Media Principles • Be Human • Be Aware • Be Honest • Be Respectful • Be a Participant • Be Open • Be courageous
    31. 31. What do you value?
    32. 32. a story about respect
    33. 33. point: everyone has value to contribute (especially if they are different then you)
    34. 34. lets look beyond social media, lets look at the BIGGER PITCTURE
    35. 35. Jeff Jarvis calls the modern era “The Great Restructuring” http://www.buzzmachine.com/2009/03/07/the-great-restructuring/
    36. 36. the perfect storm http://www.socialmediaclub.org/2009/06/04/toby-moores-on-the-perfect-storm-for-change/
    37. 37. the perfect storm http://www.socialmediaclub.org/2009/06/04/toby-moores-on-the-perfect-storm-for-change/
    38. 38. we are finally realizing that all organizations are made of people and all organizations are social http://www.chrisheuer.com/2008/06/10/towards-a-more-social-organization/
    39. 39. “what makes these times interesting is that all companies are media companies” - Tom Foremski, Silicon Valley Watcher http://www.siliconvalleywatcher.com/mt/archives/2007/08/we_live_in_a_ma.php
    40. 40. All modern organizations are media companies
    41. 41. All modern organizations are media companies
    42. 42. All modern organizations are media companies
    43. 43. All modern organizations are media companies
    44. 44. All modern organizations are media companies
    45. 45. All modern organizations are media companies
    46. 46. All modern organizations are media companies
    47. 47. All modern organizations are media companies
    48. 48. All modern organizations are media companies
    49. 49. Will it Blend’s Marketing Department is Profitable
    50. 50. this is the real opportunity for Drupal to serve, at its core, the common need of all organizations to behave as media companies
    51. 51. in times of disruptive change many people get (or feel) hurt
    52. 52. FUD Fear Uncertainty Doubt
    53. 53. social media (and drupal) is changing the way we relate to each other, the organizations we serve and the organizations that serve us
    54. 54. truth is we can no longer afford to look at the world as
    55. 55. Us vs. Them
    56. 56. the thing is, this is what we were taught, this is what we found as true.
    57. 57. we must transcend this
    58. 58. which brings me back to my love/hate relationship with Drupal
    59. 59. a problem of perception
