On Wednesday, I expect to learn the future of media. The day begins with Media Magazine‘s Future of Media Forum or “It’s Not What it Used to Be.”
At The Times Center in NYC, Wired‘s Chris Anderson will take these and other media movers and shakers through their paces: Mark Cuban, Martha Stewart, NPR’s Vivien Schiller, Ad Age, NPR’s and Chaos Scenario‘s (see above video) Bob Garfield, LinkedIn’s Reid Hoffman, and MTV’s Judy McGrath.
Later that day, yours truly will take another group of equally astute, yet non-executive media mavens through their paces. They include HuffPost’s media editor Danny Shea, Mediaite’s (and Shea’s predecessor) Rachel Sklar, The New York Times‘s prolific TV/media reporter Brian Stelter, PaidContent’s man in New York David Kaplan, and Henry Blodget’s #2 who edits the increasingly influential The Business Insider (fka Silicon Alley Insider) Nich Carlson.
So if you had your druthers and could extract anything there is to know about the future of media, and maybe by extension the future of the PR biz, where would you start? I’ve begun to formulate my questions. Please chime in with others.
Watch this space for coverage and hopefully, some audio takes, from Wednesday’s media confabs.
