Seb Paquet is a scientist by training, an artist by vocation, and a social process expert by necessity.
He published one of the first Ph.D. theses on the social web, in 2003. As a researcher, professor and entrepreneur, he has spent the last decade experimenting with social tools that boost individual and collective intelligence.
Thus far, he has variously played roles of evangelist, explainer/popularizer, user advocate, connector, and catalyst in the applications of the social web to knowledge sharing and collaboration.
He is currently undertaking a 100-day Journey into the Creative Economy. He aims to help generate awareness of the potential of social web technologies, and create and spread a literacy of collaboration far and wide, in workplaces as well as in civil society.
He writes the Emergent Cities blog and tweets under the handle @sebpaquet.
