Over the last week, the Econsultancy team has been jumping from venue to venue, listening in on some great sessions and workshops as part of Social Media Week 2013

As we know our readers are not all based in New York, we thought we'd go through the list of some of the great sessions we saw and share those that have a recorded live stream that we liked so you can watch it for yourself. It's like you were there with out having to deal with subways or the rain of last week. It also means you weren't in New York, but hey, it's much cheaper this way.

A digital native and a digital adopter in a complicated media age

Keynote: Jeff Dachis on redefining mass communications

The communication landscape has been upended; we’ve gone from a society of mass communications to a global mass of communicators.  But, this shift has opened the door to a host of questions.  How will brand marketers metricize and justify these new currencies of engagement?  Are all tweets, pins or likes created equal?  What will it take for brand marketers to be able to engage this mass of communicators at scale?

Rewiring Government for Openness, Connection, and Choice, Featuring Susan Crawford and Beth Noveck 

Presented by professors Susan Crawford and Beth Noveck, they explored how we have an opportunity to reinvent our systems in this era of big data and social networks. They stress that we need to replace regulations with more innovative alternatives to encourage entrepreneurship, protect citizens, and allow for economic growth. This is key to our futures and will be a model businesses need to look at as they become more integrated.

No more silos: amplifying impact through openness and collaboration

The process of achieving social change is traditionally often siloed and slow. Non-profits and government agencies might work towards some of the same goals, but are not amplifying each other’s work.

Tonya Surman and Josette Melchor are changing that. Tonya is the CEO of the Centre for Social Innovation, and Josette is the Founder and CEO of the Gray Area Foundation for the Arts. They both have helped build models for community change with collaboration and openness at their core.

Yet another example modern businesses can learn from.
