Brian Solis is one of the keynote speakers at SxSW in Austin, Tx this year. He is known for writing about new media, PR, and the social web. His latest book, Engage, is the most comprehensive book on how brands and businesses can use more strategic on the interwebs.

The following are direct quotes from Solis:

Social media feels like the summer of love.

Brian Solis: Engage

We are wildly public with what we are doing online. But at the end of the day, there is a real world.

Life isn't about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.

The revolution is starting from within.

Social media gives you the ability to check perception. You're not speaking at people anymore, you are speaking with them.

Brian Solis' panel at SxSW

There isn't just one social network that we need to focus on.

Tweetdeck is like a slot machine.

You're going to have to be the CNN of your industry. Know how to advertise too.

How many of you have been asked to shoot a viral video? There's no such thing as a viral video, until it's become a viral video.

Be the "we" in the social web, instead of the "me" in social media.
