I would certainly agree that if people are happy at work they are likely to be more creative. And it's true that people are more happy when I get more sunlight. Therefore, it is not a massive leap of imagination to think that there is a connection.

Having said that, a lot of my favourite music was created by people who were deeply unhappy, and probably not getting much sunlight.

I agree with a great deal of what you say, Anke, but I also think you are too pessimistic. There are a lot of people out here still carrying the flame for social media as proper conversation and true interaction. One of the problems is the networks' need to monetise themselves, which leads to them encouraging behaviour which many would see as spamming.

This suggestion is really desperate stuff. Ed and Dave could start with answering questions via Twitter rather than just broadcasting....

Social Media Surgeon, Founder of #twicket and Can't Get Online Week
Introduction

I am a Social Media Surgeon, facilitating community development, economic development, business development, and personal development, largely through the power of social media and new technologies.

I am the originator of #twicket, the World’s First Live Broadcast of a Village Cricket Match, conceived as an idea to highlight the need for fast upload speeds on internet connections, and rural broadband issues in general, which quickly became a global phenomenon thanks to the support of Stephen Fry on Twitter.

I help organisations to use social media to improve the way they communicate with their customers, constituents and supporters, particularly, but not exclusively, in the public and voluntary/community sectors. I am a social reporter, helping events and organisations communicate their activities to the world, and I am a founder member of Our Society, the forum for people-led local development. I promote and facilitate the application of modern technologies and social media to society’s issues and problems.

I have worked at senior level on Digital Skills strategy, Digital Inclusion, Public Sector transformation using technology, and the role of ICT in regeneration.  My career includes six years as Director of the South Yorkshire FE colleges’ consortium, and four years as European funding advisor to the FE colleges of Yorkshire & the Humber. Much of my earlier career was spent in the fields of community development and social enterprise, including two years as Chair of Community Enterprise UK.

I have been working hard to establish and spread Social Media Surgeries around Yorkshire & the Humber and the rest of the north of England, and I was a founder member of the Big Society in the North Forum. I am helping to develop the Big Society Social App Store, a suite of online tools designed to make community development easier to do, and I’m working on programmes to harness the power of social media to aid civic engagement and local regeneration.
