The Symposium on Social Architecture (SSA) will bring together the leading lights of the social software and social media space to discuss the overarching themes and underlying technologies that are driving the massive uptake of people-centered, user-driven, individual-connecting applications, communities, content, and services.
The SSA, produced by Corante in partnership with the Berkman Center for Internet and Society at the Harvard Law School, will host many of the movement's leading developers, entrepreneurs, thinkers and analysts in a series of lively panels, interviews, talks, and informal events designed to dig deep into the issues driving the 'social revolution'.
The one-day event is produced by Corante and will be held in Cambridge, MA, at the Harvard Faculty Club and additional venues at Harvard University. The Harvard campus offers the quintessential environment to host many of the field's leading thinkers and doers for an intense, multi-faceted, and high-minded exploration of subjects and debates related to the so-called social technologies, tools, applications and publications that are allowing individuals to connect, create, collaborate, and communicate.

The Berkman Center will host the Corante Symposium on Social Architecture (CSSA). The one-day event, which will be at Harvard, will convene many of the field's leading thinkers and doers for an intense and multi-faceted exploration of topics related to so-called social technologies, tools, applications, and publications that are allowing individuals to connect, create, collaborate, and communicate. The central themes of the symposium: the tools, technologies, and techniques that underlie our shared exploration of the social space embodied in the emerging Web 2.0 - what we call social architecture. This involves the orientation and impact of search services (like Google), the models inherent in social search systems (like Technorati, IceRocket, and others), social bookmarking solutions (like Del.icio.us, and others), and the intent and future direction of shared blogrolls, tags, trackbacks, links, and other explicit author-generated cross-references.
