Q> What's the theme of #Social track in #TiEcon 2012? How did you go about deciding this sessions for #Social track?
I spent considerable time with my co-chair @gokulr to narrow down topics in #social. Gaming, commerce and opportunities in social

Q> I noticed a panel with @arjunsethi @willharbin @pparsons et al . Is Social Gaming still hot ?
The theme for the #social track @TiEcon is having engaging discussions around current and emerging trends around #socialat

#social gaming is going through its next phase of maturation. Companies like #kixeye are bucking the trend and innovating

Q> What were the criterion for speakers in the #Social track?
We selected the best amongst entrepreneurs and VC's in the #social space to provide a diverse set of insights @TiEcon.

We are saving the best for last in this panel. If you havent registered for @TiEcon you should.

Q> How did you decide the 3 panels in the #Cloud track ? Is there any theme ?
For the #Cloud track, we started with where cloud is today and show where the most exciting opportunities are
We then got the best possible speakers for the topics. For instance, we have the CIO of Verizon Business Services on CIO panel
We also have the EVP of Cloud from VMWare in the Opportunities panel in the #Cloud track

Q> What to expect in Emerging trends & investment opportunities w/ @raimjlen @shirishsathaye@trailsfootmarks @RMTacc ?
The consumerization panel in #Cloud addresses public cloud but more from the perspective of services, not infrastructure

The CIO panel and Opportunities panel in #Cloud will address both private and public clouds, from infrastructure to SaaS

Q> What is covered in "Global CIO Forum" w/ @dsmoley & speakers from @Oracle @MorganStanley@BNYMellon @verizonbusiness
#Commerce panel will dive into what makes social commerce successful, case studies and rise of collaborative consumption.

Entrepreneurs we spoke to wanted to build businesses on the Consumerization trend, they decided for us
