Never has there been so much scale, so quickly: Facebook passes 600 million users; 4-year-old Zynga attracts 240 million gamers; iPad sells 7.5 million units in 4 months; Google embraces and extends - Microsoft style - from Droids to self-driving cars; 2-year-old Groupon turns down $6 billion from Google; Amazon (re)kindles the e-book revolution; and Apple redefines the pad and the phone forever.
How do you strategize your business amidst this whirlwind?
How will the explosion of digital consumer devices and the new networks reshape the information landscape?
Will the iPad be the savior to publishing as the ATM was to banking?
What collisions are in store as the new information oligarchs --Google/Facebook/Apple/Amazon
Don’t miss this session, where leading-edge executives will analyze business strategies. You’ll hear perspectives from an LBO/ magazine publisher; a hot, location-focused information service; a publisher-turned-VC who literally bets on the future; and a keen observer of the scene.
