Last week we held our ninth annual Social Computing Symposium on the topic:  “Off the Radar.” Inspired by Clive Thompson’s closing talk from 2012, we focused on populations and topics we forget to discuss, often hiding in plain sight.  Our goal with the event is to bring together a small group of diverse people to help inspire and shed light on novel ideas and trends in the area of social.

& thanks to the stellar folks who made this all happen:  danah Boyd, Liz Lawley, Clay Shirky, Brady Forrest, Clive Thompson, Tom Coates, Anil Dash, Gabriella Coleman, John Borthwick, Baratunde Thurston, Tricia Wang and NYU’s Interactive Telecommunications Department.

We only wish we could include more people, so sharing out the recorded videos of many of the presentations. Here are all the talks, some really amazing ones- and the agenda below. Enjoy!
