The Business of New Media





    "It was great to be a part of SDForum's 'New Media' conference. It was a great forum for industry leaders and visionaries to share their views on new media and gather invaluable insight into emerging trends, innovations and business opportunities being created."
    Ramneek Bhasin
    Mobio Network

    "Our New Media panel, focusing on citizen journalism, was spirited and challenging, including some excellent audience push-back and questions."
    Dan Gillmor
    Center for Citizen Media

    "I'll admit to being jaded about conference panels, having participated in 30 or so during the past year. But SDForum's session on citizen journalism was a rousing, no-holds-barred, unpredictable Carnaval of ideas. I'll be back next year."
    JD Lasica

    "I got a lot of positive comments on the Investment Partnering Panel. Attendees seemed to value getting real world perspectives from panelists that had actually worked across the table from one another as entrepreneur and investor, in companies at the angel and VC stage. People also seemed to enjoy the multiple divergent perspectives on YouTube, and what it means for the future of video and other new media startups."
    Jim Lussier
    Norwest Venture Partners

    "I had a good time at the SDForum "New Media" event. It was very exciting to be in a room with that much brainpower and entrepreneurial acumen."
    Larry Sanger
    Founder of The Citizendium Project

    Presentation Overview

    Advertisers, media and technology companies are mindful that consumers have migrated away from the traditional carriers of their messages and have begun to find new ways to reach them: podcasting, blogging, media content delivery, social networking, wikis, mobile marketing, video games and more. Join SDForum as we explore the age of participation and the technologies and strategies behind these new tools.
