Free Forrester videos on Social Computing -- and much more

I spoke a few weeks ago at Forrester's Consumer Forum event in NYC about how companies can tap into social computing. I've included the links below to the MP3 and video files (they are FREE!!!), along with several other relevant speeches and Q&A that I thought you'd be interested in. I've included a few summaries as well as the lengths. [Note: the videos aren't quite "videos" (at least, not on my connection), but you'll get the slides that accompany the speeches -- and also a view of me "walking" around the stage!]. Also included are interviews with Paul Tagliabue, Commissioner of the NFL, Greg Joswiak, VP of Worldwide Product Marketing for iPod, Apple Computer Digital Home, and Vyomesh Joshi, EVP of the Imaging and Personal Systems Group at HP.

Christine Overby: "The Essentials Of Consumer-Driven Innovation" (20 min. 11 sec.)
To turn consumer insights into profits, companies must master "consumer-focused innovation" — in which consumers play an active role in products, services, experience design, and marketing.

Paul Tagliabue (NFL) : Q&A with George Colony Part 2 of 2 (4 min 7 sec)

Greg Joswiak (Apple): Q&A with Josh Bernoff (22 min. 0 sec.)
Joswiak explains how Apple changes the rules of the game. He includes a special emphasis on how Apple taps into customer feedback online and in its stores and then combines those insights with its own technology vision.

Vyomesh Joshi, Exec. VP, Imaging and Personal Systems Group, Hewlett-Packard (3 min. 10 sec.)

It strikes me that Amazon.com in the form of "Consumer Product Reviews" has successfully proved the model of social computing as a business driver.

It also struck me that there could be an equivalently powerful tie-in with using those reviews to drive innovation as Chris and Christine discuss.

Why hasn't anyone done this yet? I'm sure that there are hundreds of companies who scour Amazon for reviews and feed them into their product development process. But there is surely a better solution...


sorry...correcting the email address from my previous post.


Very very cool of you to put these up!

I'm very excited to be able to share your speech in particular with my colleagues.
