Seafood Watch vs. Yelp: Future of Social Food
    Friday March 9, 2012 5:00pm - 6:00pm @ Hilton Austin Downtown (Room 616AB) (500 E 4th St, Austin, TX 78701)
    World food systems hang in a balance--the latest tech only hints at what’s coming. Consider the future of social tools with us, using a seafood lens. DNA testing, barcode scanning, big data and ubiquitous computing mean we can hack the food system like never before. Corporations have yet to provide consumers with tools to understand the impacts of our food choices. This is a change that we will have to lead. Let’s build it today. The open food system will be social. Disruption from a social food system may be as powerful as social media has been in the media world. We can demassify food like social tools have demassified media. Just as we have increasingly turned to the web to learn about—and influence—world and local events, so too we will turn to an open and social food system, managed online, to learn about and acquire food.
