From Twitter to Flickr to Facebook, 2008 was a year in which 'social media' flexed its muscles. New online tools helped people follow the news -- and in some cases, including the elections and hurricane season, became a part of the story. In this segment, we'll talk with technology guru Tim O'Reilly about the year in social media, and what comes next. O'Reilly, the founder and CEO of a company that publishes books, magazines, and web content for the tech savvy, is a leading proponent of interconnectedness and interaction online. We'll talk about how social media interacted with each other and with the offline world.
