We can’t work together if we don’t see each other. Social media as-is needs to go.

This site is based on my talk at the International Conference on Social Media for Good, which presented a framework for distributed social networking.

By 2050, six billion of us will live in cities. We are the driving force behind urban development. To build better cities, we’ll have to work harder, talk to each other and innovate better. At first, mainstream social networks seemed ideal for engagement, but instead they’ve left us in a haze.

Done right, distributed social networking would give us control of our data, increase the impact of organizations and governments, and bring more productivity and innovation to local communities.
