Are We Killing Social with Social?
    Sunday March 11, 2012 11:00am - 12:00pm @ Omni Downtown (Longhorn) (700 San Jacinto Blvd, Austin, TX 78701)

    Doesn’t it seem like a new social network launches every day? From geosocial to social TV, from social gaming to social news, it seems like we’re just adding a “social” layer to everything we do, online or offline. As a digital solution for seemingly every facet of human culture emerges, it’s starting to look a lot like...well, human culture, digitized.

    We have to ask: how many social networks are people willing to sign up for? Do people want a massive social network with everyone on it or are they more interested in niche networks focused on different passions? Maybe both. Or, maybe we’ll all just get sick of it and start mailing letters to each other again.

    The Austin Chronicle recommends this event in "Tumblr Today, the Tate Tomorrow: Does the rise of social media mean more art or just more noise?" Read the full feature here.
