What’s the future of social media? The National Archives hosted a discussion of that rather big question earlier this month. After an introduction from the Archivist of the US and a presentation on an upcoming “citizen archivist dashboard,” I gave a short presentation at the McGowan Theater in which I talked about the past, present and future for social media.
The talk framed a subsequent panel discussion about social media where Wright and I joined David Weinberger, senior researcher at the Harvard Berkman Center for Internet and Society, and Sarah Bernard, deputy director for the Office of Digital Strategy at the White House.
I hope you all find the panel interesting.

Exciting to see more of our nation’s history available to all people.
