With Internet Week New York upon us in just a few days, we’re busy mapping out our schedules (and figuring out the best parties to attend). There’s certainly a lot to look forward to, but I wanted to bring your attention to two panels moderated by Yours Truly and featuring some of the smartest technology minds in NYC.
If you’re interested in diving into the tsunami of mobile media or want to explore the world of digital service demand, sign up for these panels while there’s still room!
How to survive and profit from the rapid proliferation of mobile media devices.
Forget about the simplicity of cord-cutting. The rise of mobile devices has led to a flood of media and social networking content that makes cable’s 500 channels seem quaint. We now have access to real-time news, periodical literature, mobile video, time-shifted content, new music releases, podcasts, RSS news, streaming video, app updates … the list of potential media sources we spend time with is growing longer every month. And that’s not even counting the time we spend on social networks. With mobile as the new frontier, traditional media companies and young upstarts are vying for our attention and loyalty.
