The panel on "Image-Based Social Media Platforms" is fascinating, both because of the insights but also, surprise surprise, because of the images that they're showing, including athletes and firefighters holding kittens and protesters hugging soldiers and all that stuff. Really arresting, powerful images -- but of course, words can't convey their power. There is no substitute for images, period.
