Delegates at the 2008 NLab Social Networks Conference will remember how Andrea Saveri's presentation on The Future of Work: Amplified Individuals, Amplified Organizations got everyone thinking about the challenges and opportunities of connecting social media with small business.
Today at the Amplified Individuals and Business Resilience event we're pleased to launch the follow-up: a specially-commissioned talk from Andrea on Amplifying Businesses and Communities for Resilience. We think it raises some important questions about the contribution of amplified thinking to the way we respond to current constraints.
Please add your own thoughts on this blog or tweet them with hashtag #nlab.
