MIT/Stanford Venture Lab on multi-platform social networks

This all-volunteer organization hosted another great gathering last night at Stanford, “Shaking the Money Tree of Multi-Platform Social Networks.” The presenters and panel were excellent. Make sure to visit the VLab site to learn more about Jeremiah Owyang of Forrester, Jia Shen of RockYou, Sourabh Niyogi of SocialMedia, Steve Cohen of Bebo, Kevin Marks of Google OpenSocial and Ken Gullicksen of Morgenthaler Ventures.

The biggest take-away from the panel discussion for foldier is: applications “attacking” utility issues for Internet users will be in high demand in the coming months. We’ve seen some fun entertainment apps, and now the panel is forecasting apps that make using our content easier. While foldier is a standalone system that people can use without any connection to the social networks, a great many of our members will be linking to their content on a variety of networks and sharing links with others, organizing their content and searching it very easily.

So whether we wear a social network application hat or a foldier-only hat, we are all about making the Internet easier to navigate. Last night was yet another validation of our purpose and our timing.
