Blogs, social networks, and online video have been in the ascendancy for the media industry for many years now – but with the recent turmoil with brick-and-mortar bookstores and the rapid adoption of Kindles, tablets, apps and the mobile web, we could very well finally be in the “convergence” moment that many people in digital media have discussed for years. The revolution in business models and digital distribution that disrupted the music industry is now turning publishing on its head, and TV and film aren’t far behind. Beyond that, the world of tablets invites publishers to become interactive producers, TV execs to become print authors, and digital developers to build new business models around authors, publishers, and media. Our panel features leaders in all forms of media – from publishing to television - exploring this new world of digital "convergence." Our panel will discuss their opinions on where the present round of convergence is leading, whether the app-based Tablet world introduces a new opportunity for monetizing content beyond ad-based revenue, and what new forms of interactive media we can expect for an app-based mobile audience.
