Under the Radar Conference: Why Digital Media Matters
June 14, 2006 8:00am - 6:00pm Mountain View, Ca. Microsoft Campus
Just when they had the Internet figured out, big media?s running scared again. The power of participatory publishing has taken the blogosphere from laughing stock to triple threat: First text blogs knocked the wind out of the old world newspapers; then Yahoo bet big on photo sharing by buying Flickr; iTunes has used podcasts to bring back radio shows; now YouTube and a mob of ?vlogging? technologies are pulling eyeballs away from network and cable TV.
