SXSW was insane. At my Future 15 presentation, I had the stage between Ben Relles, YouTube’s Next New Networks founder, and Evan Spiridellis, Jib Jab Founder, and focused my talk on counting clicks for conversion and capitalizing on the moment of monetization.  But I didn’t shock the monkey until I called out a prediction that […]

SXSW Music kickoff is tonight!    That means SXSWi & Film is ending – oh boo – the winning session goes to the Cuban/Boxee debate and the Sean Lennon panel.  The Tarantino session had the most drama.  Most tweeted parties included Gowalla, PBS, Pure Volume, Frog Design, Diggnation and Ning (RV)IP Karaoke. That said, in just a […]

TV of Tomorrow has to be one of the most productive industry shows around.  Not only was the staging cinematically breathtaking but there was as much drama offstage in the dealmaking.  If I wasn’t assigned to do ten SXSW band interviews for Spinner over the next few days I could easily post nine thousand words […]


Anyone who is a fan of Tracy Swedlow’s excellent InteractiveTV Today blog is going to want to be at her TV of Tomorrow Show this week at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco where the talk will be everything OTT, CloudTV, and TV everywhere with probably the best discussion on Tcommerce interactive […]

#CES and #NATPE kicked off the year with keen insights into ubiquitous connectivity and content. Awashed in fantastical visions, the theme of imaginative wonder, optimism and excitement permeated the events marking the awakening of a magical many-to-many era.
