On April 11, 2012 in Palo Alto at SAP, the Future Salon hosted Howard Rheingold’s talked about his new book “Net Smart: How to Thrive Online.” While social networks are transforming the business and politics, Rheingold shows how to interact on a personal level. We must develop our skills at attention, participation, collaboration, critical thinking and networking. Networks have structures that influence the way individuals and groups behave. You should have a balance of weak and strong ties. Rather than making a large number of connections, you want centrality where people go through you to connect with each other.
