She helped birth social media – and now worries about its future

We take social media for granted – so it was cool for me to spend some time with a Pittsburgh native who was there for its birth. Chris Shipley gets credit for hosting the first social media event, for popularizing the term and maybe for coining it. She now hosts Newsgeist (if you know, you’re in the know). And she’s back in the Steel City to work on a media startup called Sparkt. Now she worries about social media’s future.
