An Interview with Marc Smith at CNI's 2007 Spring Task Force Meeting, Part 2

This is part two of a two-part podcast featuring an interview with Marc Smith at the CNI Spring 2007 Task Force Meeting. This 2nd half of our interview lasts approximately 30 minutes and focuses on the future of social networking, and mobile devices. Marc discusses his theory that we are "moving from an ephemeral society to an archival society".

Marc Smith is a senior research sociologist at Microsoft Research (MSR) specializing in the social organization of online communities and computer mediated interaction. He leads the Community Technologies Group at MSR, and he is the co-editor of Communities in Cyberspace (Routledge), a collection of essays exploring the ways identity, interaction and social order develop in online groups.
