Jeff Mendelsohn as MC and spokesperson for emerging social economies.
Casey Fenton on the origins of the worldwide Couchsurfing phenomenon.
Frank Schulenburg on bridging the parallel worlds of academia and Wikipedia.

Giovanna Mingarelli on using social games to improve our lives and the state of the world.
Amy Critchett on finding your art way, personal to public.
