4. When, how and why did you decide to not be homeless?
5. Having been through such an experience, you elected to then spend your life working with and for the homeless. Why?

Where we're going
[Howard Rheingold. Photo by
Q. You were an early champion of virtual reality, which may not havetaken off as quickly as you forecast. Do you think it is still likely toevolve? How do you see it being incorporated into social media moving forward?
Q.I’ve argued that social media isdisrupting all institutions, business, government, education, health, etc. Doyou agree or disagree? What is your vision for how technology will make this abetter/world for everyday people 10 or 100 years hence.
Q. You teach at Stanford and UC Berkeley. How has technology changed education and learning since you were at Reed in the 60s?
Q. Can you tell me what’s on college studentminds these days?
Where we've been
Q. You attended Reed College in the mid 60s, an elite liberal arts college known for free thought and lifestyle. How did that experience shape who you have become?
Q. The common thread that seems to tie your considerablewriting and thought together is the interaction of the human brain andtechnology. It seems to have developed in the early 80s between your workwith The Whole Earth Catalog and your involvement with The Well. Can you walk me through how that developed?
3. You coined the term “Virtual Community” and it became the title of one ofyour most influential books. It’s first chapter talked about theParenting group in The Well. Your stories in that chapter are strikingly close to stories I found in Twitter. Can you compare/contrast The Well and Twitter?What has remained the same and what has changed?
Q. For the benefit of our studio audience, just whatdo you mean when you say the computer is an amplifier of the human mind?
In 2002, you authored Smart Mobs, which has been critically acclaimed for it’sforeshadowing of social media. Among the incidents that most impressed me washow street people used mobile SMS to out maneuver police & eventuallyoverthrow the government. When the Iran election took place in June ofthis year, did you see a certain similarity? How did has technology involved toempower people. Where do you see/hope it is ultimately headed?
Q. How has the incident changed your life?
Q. How active were you in social media before the "Hudson River Miracle"incident? How many follower/following did you have going in to that day? Howmany do you have now? How much time did you spend on social media before theincident. How much now?
Q. When I interviewed you for Twitterville, you were planning working onElementz a nutritional enhancement drink for professional athletes. How long haveyou been working on it? How is it doing?
7. More recently, you announced InboxAlarm.com. Can youtell me what it does and how you got the idea for it?
8. Is InboxAlarm potentially a new business for you, or is it just aone-off from Elementz Nutrition?
Q. How have sales gone since you announced InboxAlarm?
Q. You have previously told me your two passions are health and social media.Can you compare and contrast starting businesses serving in the two industries?For example how are the the process and time-to-market similar or different? o
Q. You spend much of your free time in outdoor physical activities such as bikeriding and something called "bouldering." Just what is that, and when and how didyou get into it?
Q So you boulder climb alone? It doesn't involve the teamwork andinterdependent teamwork of technical rock climbing. Why did you choose it?
Q. When, how and why did you discover Timeraiser?
Q. What appealed to you about Timeraiser, since there are so many other optionswhere you can volunteer your time?
Q. Can you walk me through the process in which you volunteered through the theTimeraiser silent auction for Big Sisters and how you obtained the photo?
Q. I understand you introduced social media components to Timeraisers. Can youtell me how and why you did that?
Q. Got an interesting story to share that happened on Twitter involvingTimeraisers?
Q. How has social media changed Timeraiser? What additional potential do yousee?
