Later this month, I will be speaking in a general session panels (friday 20) at the Monaco Media Forum. This is an invitation-only media event, put together by Publicis Events Worldwide, with a large number of executives from the media world, with a small twist of entrepreneurs, VCs and the like.
My panel, just after the opening session keynote will focus on
“New Waves”: Sharply focused presentations from the leading edge of digital innovation.
. Jason Kerkorian CTO Slingmedia
. Suranga Chandratillake, Founder & CTO Blinkx
. Michelle Wu, CEO MediaZone.
. Rodrigo Sepulveda Schulz, CEO vpod.tv.
Although we haven't yet talked to each other on how we want to structure this panel, my guess is that Slingmedia will talk about place, time and device shifting of media consumption; Blinkx will talk about how to find the proper content in this massive arrival on new online video; Mediazone will tell us about their experience with bringing TV content online; and vpod.tv will probably talk about quality user generated content and the monetization of it.
We have about 2 weeks to go before the event, so I'd love your suggestions for more examples about user-generated video monetization; In particular I'd appreciate great pointers to great original content that we haven't all yet seen. It will make the session more interactive, and hopefully provoke more reactions. Use the comments below for feedback. Thanks.
