D: Dive Into Mobile–The Full Interview Video of RIM's Mike Lazaridis

As promised, All Things Digital will begin publishing the full videos of the interviews we did last week at our D: Dive Into Mobile conference in San Francisco.

The first extension of the event, it produced some very newsy sessions. We’ll be posting them all week and next.

That includes this corker with Research in Motion’s co-CEO and co-founder Mike Lazaridis (pictured here).

In it, he did not quite answer our questions about why RIM’s flagship BlackBerry seems to have missed a step in the highly competitive smartphone wars compared to its new and more innovative rivals, Apple’s iPhone and Google Android.

While he did make a global argument, Lazaridis also seemed to be putting his big bet on the new PlayBook tablet the Canadian company is launching, as well as RIM’s reputation for security and reliability.

Here’s the full video of the interview, which Lazaridis did with Walt Mossberg and me:

Up tomorrow: Google’s Android kingpin, Andy Rubin!

Social media tools are the latest in a long line of time-stealers in the workplace, following in the footsteps of March Madness brackets, afternoon golf games, morning water cooler gossip or cigarette breaks. But social media like Twitter and Facebook are more visible from a distance (of both time and space), so they are easier to criticize and quantify.
