THINK has quietly evolved a second life – and that life plays out in social media. The social side of THINK 14 was easily as active as what happened on stage, with some 5,000 Tweets, Instagram and Facebook posts generating virtual conversation, debate and daydreaming as the conference unfolded.

It’s not possible to summarize all of the social media activity in a short post like this one. Inevitably, you lose the odd tangents, random musings and diverse opinions that make social media worth following. Nevertheless, here’s a parting glance at some of the topics covered:

From Monday’s Evolution Sessions:
