On the first day of South by Southwest Interactive this year, Social Media Today and IBM hosted The Social Business Shake-Up at the W in Austin. The panel touched on what we see as the major themes of social business: collaboration, customer-centricity, security, analytics, and innovation.

I have an underlying feeling that, as an industry, we are struggling to really innovate. I think this is due to a number of factors. Digital communication has never been easier to do, so brands are flocking to it. It’s cheap and easy, and the barriers to entry are low.

It’s a Peruvian Potato Poutine. Only unlike a typical Canadian poutine, this one had tomatoes, cauliflower, onions and cumin. How did that happen? Watson. As in IBM’s Watson. Using his vast database of food qualities, chemical knowhow and, dare we say, creativity, the big-brained computer thought it up.

Edward Snowden was piped in from Russia with the ACLU moderating in the room to address the tech community as being, necessarily, tasked with the responsibility of protecting both users and themselves from (1) unwarranted and unknown monitoring, and (2) cyber attack.

There were some central, unifying themes this year at SXSW. Big data was evident in everything from startups pitching new data-driven platforms, to the profit motives (somewhat disguised as altruism) of companies mapping our genes, to IBM’s Watson-informed lunch truck. Global impact and policy had an entire track.
