The global theme:   global theme, The Future of Now: Always On, Always Connected, with us  (Social Media Week) and Nokia.  The video below shows some of the highlights.  The event is huge, almost overwhelming in choices (in NYC at leat), so SMW has a cool app to help you navigate. I attended sessions in NYC.  SO interesting and useful!   If you didn’t make it to social media week this February you can experience some of the sessions on SMW Live, and they are well worth your time to view.
