Habemus speakers

Il tema della serata ve l’abbiamo già detto!

E adesso tocca alle speaker, coloro che ci aiuteranno a portarlo avanti per tutta la serata!

Vi chiediamo solo un minimo sforzo: 4 profili su cinque sono in inglese e scusate, ma a due giorni dall’evento e con 8 ore lavorative normali sulle spalle, nun ce la si fa a tradurli! :)

In ordine alfabetico:

Barbara Bellini ha un lavoro che la ricompensa dello stress che le procura, una figlia di quasi 8 anni, un passato professionale che le piace definire “denso”. Ha cominciato nell’88, come cronista di “bianca” nel quotidiano locale di Prato. Nel ’92 diventa professionista e lavora a Roma, a Paese Sera. L’anno prima si era laureata in Lettere Moderne, con una tesi sulla Storia dell’opera di cui si stupisce, ma non rinnega. Come non si pente di avere il diploma di perito chimico. Dal ’92 al ’97, a Roma, ha fatto la giornalista. Ha firmato articoli per Io Donna, Gioia, Panorama, Epoca, ma anche Famiglia Cristiana, Il Mattino di Napoli, Il Messaggero. Rientra a Firenze, apre un service editoriale suo marito e comincia ad approcciare la Rete. L’anno successivo entra in Dada (allora una piccola srl) come consulente. Comincia a partecipare a convegni, per due anni fa l’assistente di un docente del Master in Multimedia della Rai. Per qualche tempo riesce a *non decidere* e a portare avanti i suoi due mestieri: giornalista e manager. Poi è arrivato il “terzo lavoro”, che ha ormai quasi 8 anni e si chiama Cloe, e con la maternità è arrivata la voglia di mettere qualche punto fermo. Così, ha scritto un piccolo libro “La Firenze dei bambini – manuale per vivere la città” e poi ha lasciato una ad una le sue corrispondenze, i suoi dibattiti e le altre divertenti “perdite di tempo” e si è dedicata alla carriera in Dada. Responsabile editoriale di Clarence, responsabile del prodotto m-site per H3G, responsabile contenuti per il Country Italia, da quasi due anni è responsabile Content & Community Dada.net. “Per un chimico laureato in lettere, giornalista professionista, mamma… direi che è un buon risultato. per ora ;)”

Maz Hardey is a leading thinker of the impact of new social media and social networks. She is currently working on her doctorate that is funded by the ESRC about how social media provide a new ‘pivototality’ for social interaction that is based on user engagement and social immersion. Maz Hardey consults to business and various Web 2.0 companies to offer a critical evaluation into the impact of social networks and their related emergent social phenomena. Her insight is unique, working at both an academic and professional level that offers a combination of potential business strategies and related social theory.
