How will the growth of widgets, mashups and web feeds affect the online media landscape?
When you can get all your favourite bits of the web delivered to a feed reader or a personalised homepage, bypassing the "destination website" setup, what are the implications for brands, marketing and web media?
This seems to be where things are heading as media is delivered by RSS and content is "widgetised" - deportalized, snipped, aggregated and mashed up everywhere.
Do newly launched brands and businesses even need a website? Are web services the new black? What can we learn from the pioneers of RSS delivery and marketing?
Join us at the fifth Chinwag Live evening on 16th May - where everybody's input counts - to lift the lid on what's happening and start making sense of the issues...
