Hey #SXSW peeps - today (Saturday 3:30 at Intercontinental) come see +Tiffany Monhollon & +Mike Merrill talk about Local!
If you're planning sessions tomorrow, I'm speaking on local marketing at 3:30 at the Intercontinental downdown at 701 Congress! Details here, would love to see you there, and feel free to spread the word! #sxsw #sxswi #sxlocalchat
Every consumer is local. They live in a community. They're engaging and interacting in their favorite places, online and offline. And much of today's marketing misses the mark when it comes to...

Can You Tweet That? Social Media and the Law - +Dara Quackenbush #sxswi #sxnotes <-- notes from SXSW sessions

Tests of libel: defamation, publication, identification, negligence, damages
Defense of libel: truth, privilege, fair comment and criticism
- Organization & companies are considered public persons when it comes to media law
- In general as an employee or freelancer the company you work for owns the copyright to what you write during employment, find out about your company/contract
- Copyright protects individual work for life plus 70 years, corporation 95 years.
- Someone still owns the rights to "Happy Birthday" song - this is why the big chain restaurants, generally have their own version
- Fair use: you can quote from a copyrighted article but the quote must be brief relative to the length of the total work.
- If copyrighted material is used for commercial purposes permission is required. There is no fair use.
- the topic of @Pinterest comes up - copy/pasting entire posts into Pinterest is against copyright, linking to or quoting is okay. How much you can take is relative to the entire length of the article - by definition is needs to be brief.

SoLoMo Redefined: Next Gen Social Local Mobile #SXnotes
(speakers: +Chris Messina , +Matt Galligan , +Scott Kveton , +Jeff Rohrs )

- "My mobile. Is my extension of my personality. It tells me where I need to be, what i want to do, who I want to see. It's my second brain" - Matt Galligan
- "I think we are in an era of confusion, bc we are coming out a time that was defined by file types.
- What hasn't happened yet, is thinking about what group or ad hoc computing will be like, when the device is no longer the focus.
- I think the concept of privacy is going to go away. It's just happening anyway from the nature of devices.
- Touch-computing is much more personal, it's responding to you, creating a relationship, in the future that relationship will be more personalized
- There is a constant question about permission for customizations, on the other hand, devices are able to elevate the experience by getting the user's vantage point through that same personalization
- The pace of technology is quickly out-growing the speed in which laws can be created about it. Apps accessing address book, devices sharing photos without specific prompt
- We are seeing second generation of apps outside of "we need an app, so we can have an app"
- Privacy is in a negotiated state among an individual and their piers, the rules are still unclear about a friend's permission to share their friend's information.

I'm thinking this might be a easy weekend project. Particularly for books and random gadgets around my apt. Anyone done this before? I've sold books individually but running to the post office every 4 minutes isn't very fun.

+Christopher Baccus with +AT&T Fireside chat with +Jason Falls at #Explore

- "we look more at what the total community is at a point of time". Some companies put a $ value on A facebook fan. Chris says to look at the value of the community as a whole for the past week, past month, reach, clicks, overall "how we've changed the needle".
- "This effort on this site, had this amount of value between these two points of time"
- "AT&T is still predominately a Facebook focuses marketing team because that's where the majority of our resources are.. But as a greater team we are looking at challenges and expanding to multi-channel"
- We're basically just trying to make our form of communication change to fit out media and communication is already changing.
