Virtual Track

Virtual Attendance

Can’t make it to Portland in person? Attend virtually using Adobe Connect, by our exclusive Diamond Sponsor Adobe Systems.

We will be live streaming (with video) all keynote sessions and one breakout session from each time slot (the virtual track). All other sessions will be recorded (audio and slides) so you can later see all the sessions you didn’t attend live.

During the conference, Virtual Track Liaison Phylise Banner will relay your questions and answers to the speakers, and your roving reporter Joel Glickman will introduce you to in-person attendees and vendors in the exhibit halls during lunch and session breaks.

Engineering Content 4.0 for a Digital World
By Joe Gollner

In 2016, the idea of Content 4.0 emerged as a community of thought leaders put their heads together to envision how the business of communication is going to change in the years ahead. The rapid unfolding of events in 2017 has confirmed our original ideas. So this year, our attention has shifted to exploring the details of how we make this happen and what specifically we need to change. Also in 2017, we have been exploring further the idea of information consumers and how the notion of Consumer 4.0 can help us better understand what we mean by Content 4.0.

Content Strategy for Civil Discourse
by David Dylan Thomas 

In the current political climate, it seems like we’ve all but given up on productive, respectful discourse. However, there are simple design and content strategy choices we can make that encourage collaboration over conflict, even when dealing with hot-button issues. In this session we’ll look at real-world examples of how the way we phrase a question or design an interaction can have a huge impact on the quality of conversation, and the three rules they share.

This is an extension of the TED talk, The Three Rules of Productive Discourse
