As we rev our engines for next week’s NewTeeVee Live conference on Nov. 12 in San Francisco, Chris and I and our other moderators’ minds are turning to what exactly we’ll talk about with the folks we’re interviewing. Over the next few days, we wanted to give you a chance to let us know what you’d ask.
Here’s the first batch, my own line-up of fireside chat subjects:
First up is Ryan Higa, the No. 1 most-subscribed YouTube user of all time. Higa is authentically creative, a home-grown video talent. He can’t help but be making a buck off his work with the number of views he hauls in. What do you want to know about Higa, his career and his real opinion of “Fred”?
Next I have an interview with Hunter Walk, director of product management at YouTube. Everyone in the NewTeeVee audience, both in person and virtually, is a YouTube constituent — a watcher or creator or both. We’re planning to hit up Walk with questions about where the leading video site is headed, how it’s fitting into the new social media ecosystem, and what it’s doing to get web content into the living room. What else do you want to know?
After that I’ll be talking jointly with Andy Mitchell of CNN and Randi Zuckerberg of Facebook. The two partnered to produce the seminal Social TV event: CNN.com’s live stream of Barack Obama’s Inauguration. Well, it’s been 10 months; where are we now? How can we harness social context to push forward both the web and television?
Please let me know in the comments or on email (liz at gigaom) what you want to hear about. Or if you don’t want to share the glory of your awesome question, go ahead and buy a ticket to NewTeeVee Live yourself where you can ask it live, as well as meet these fine folks in the flesh.
