Sometimes a bit of regulation is the catalyst for a redefinition ...

I like the distinction here between 'doing' social (bolted on) and 'being' social (built in). It reminds me of the phrase coined by Joe Peppard and John Ward:

"Adding technology to badly designed business processes simply serves to speed up the mess."

And, to your last point +Philip Sheldrake : big data is an inescapable facet of today's PR landscape. Yet, I can well believe the lack of pick up from PR and marketing firms re the hi:project. 

There's an old cliche in change management:

Change happens only in reaction to irresistible market pressure.

Put another way: when there's a fire there are two groups of people. Those who move as soon as they see the flames. And, those who only start moving once they feel the heat of the flames synging their clothes.

In PR we talk a lot about change. Sometimes we're slow to do more than talk.

Peter Drucker asserted that the purpose of business is to create and keep a customer. This post is why I believe this assertion is no longer adequate, in terms of complexity and sustainability.

+Philip Sheldrake Sorry, Philip, I've been working on my sites and I think I broke more than I fixed. But I think things are workable now. Please try again.

Your PR business, your PR capability, where it encompasses relationships with EU citizens, is now built on data or you have no PR capability at all.

Fancy a beer? ...
The hi:project is gaining momentum. Find out why, and what to make of it. Likely topics of discussion are: • personal data, privacy and the General Data Protection Regulation • a citizen-centric Internet of Things • digital inclusion and accessibility • sustainability 6pm for a 6.20pm kick-off. Likely a 20 min presentation and then good old-fashioned conversation over a beer.

Philip it's great you're bringing the complexity issue centre stage so to speak. It is a sadly overlooked and under-respected dimension in much PR thinking.
I would suggest it is the critical element for invalidating the '2 way symmetrical model' proposed by Grunig which has been central to much formal PR teaching about PR: the 2 way communications model is a simplistic model imposed on a complex, chaotic world and fails as a consequence.
