The Talk: Convergence isn’t all about technology. It’s also about the blurring of business models. It’s about the merging of content and distribution. It’s about connecting the for-profit world to social causes.
All these categories that we’ve come to recognize as being distinct are becoming inseparable. And the people who are going to win in this new world of convergence are the people who understand why this matters. Being successful in the media and technology world means more than having just the tools and the code—it means crafting real relationships based on give and take, and understanding the motivations of socially-conscious viewers.
We’ll talk about this emerging paradigm of online media and about the new art of distribution. In a world where businesses can do as much good as a nonprofit, we’ll show you how connecting to good causes can extend your reach online.
