Respect the Internet live feed tomorrow 12/3/2010

I'm speaking tomorrow in New York at Ketchum's day-long conversation / debate "about the role companies can (and should or should not) play in shaping online culture." There will also be speakers from ROFLCon, Buzzfeed, VICE, Gawker Media, MIT, and Harvard. My talk is going to be about DIY innovation and why it's smart for companies to become "maker friendly."

It should be interesting! You can watch a live feed of the event here.
