Profiting from the new web–23 May, London


Profiting from the New Web | Internetome – The Internet of Things Conference

On May 23rd I will be joined by Tim Berners-Lee, the inventor of the World Wide Web, together with some super minds as a speaker in the ‘Profiting from the New Web’ conference.

The term Web 1.0 is applied retrospectively to a Web of documents and ecommerce. The term Web 2.0 has come to describe social community and user-generated content. The New Web – the Web of Data or the Semantic Web, and sometimes Web 3.0 – entails the Web itself understanding the meaning of that participation and content.

The conference mission sounds extremely grand but when you have the minds from the Web Science Trust, you realise this isn’t mere hyperbole but a genuine commitment to make the work a better place.

Discover new and better ways to do business, run our countries, and lead fulfilling and sustainable lives via the intelligent, innovative and diligent development of the New Web, and to make progress faster than otherwise

The agenda looks amazing – pass the word and please register. I know some experts who i admire greatly are already attending and I look forward to hearing their views.

11:00 Panel 1 – Unlocking the value in open data, Nigel Shadbolt, Bill Thompson and Ian Davis.

Open data is a term describing the philosophy and act of making certain data freely available to everyone, without restrictions from copyright, patents or other control mechanisms. The panel debates the wider benefits of institutions beginning to open their data.

12:00 Panel 2 – Open for Business: mobility, agility and security, Phil Tetlow, Ralf Herbrich and Victor Henning.

14:10 Panel 3 – Driving business success through social analytics, Mike Galvin, Jonny Bentwood and Sudarshan Murthy.

Leading organisations listen actively to the social Web for clues about their performance and reputation; and that of their competitors. Moreover, they’re adept at translating this intelligence into competitive advantage. The panel reviews best practice to date, and takes a look at what’s expected in the next year or two.

15:10 Panel 4 – Is every company now a media company? Charlie Beckett, Martin Moore and Hector Arthur.

The media has always played a role in connecting organisations with stakeholders, but how have new media and disintermediation changed this landscape? The panel discusses social media, citizen journalism, brand journalism, and the ramification of device convergence and divergence – PCs, netbooks, mobiles, smartphones, TVs and tablets.

16:10 Networking break

16:40 What next? Graham Spittle and JP Rangaswami.

JP Rangaswami and Graham Spittle are quizzed on their regard for the day’s proceedings and invited to add their perceptive take on the most important and urgent opportunities and threats – perceptions for which both are particularly renowned.
