During the April 2013 Social Mood Conference, we knew going in that we had exceptional roster of expert speakers. Numerous PhDs, the Chief Scientist at a hot Silicon Valley startup, a tenured professor at Cambridge.

The speed and volume of news stories in recent weeks reminds me of the break at the start of a game of pool: The cue ball strikes a tight cluster of 15 other balls, which move so fast that your eye simply can't follow every one of them.
