"Backchannel Moderators" added to each session.
This is a little experiment that we are conducting aimed at augmenting the conference by better connecting online and offline. The backchannel moderator will act as a panel's official livetweeter and will compile questions from Twitter for the Q&A session.

On April 9th, 2011, over 200 people attended the first “Theorizing the Web” conference held on the University of Maryland campus. The program consisted of 14 panels, two workshops, two symposia (one on social media’s role in the Arab revolutions, the other, a conversation with Martin Irvine, Director of the Irvine Contemporary Gallery, on social media and street art), two plenaries (by Saskia Sassen on “Digital Formations of the Powerful and the Powerless” and George Ritzer on “Why the Web Needs Post-Modern Theory”), and a keynote by Danah Boyd, Microsoft Research, on “Privacy, Publicity Intertwined.” Presenters travelled from around the world (including Hong Kong and New Zealand).
