Scoping the Always On conference, I’ve noticed many A-list bloggers, but few mainstream media types. I’m not even talking about journos credentialed to cover (after all, there is a competitive confab making news in NYC this week).
Where are the media execs charged with getting their arms around the disruptive forces decimating their businesses?
One exception is former Newsweek editor and current Wash Post/Newsweek Interactive VP Mark Whitaker whom I’ve now seen here on both days of the conference. I (gently) collared him by the coffee bar and he amicably agreed to share some impressions. Here’s the audio file. TRT: 2:49
