After months of planning and some real-time programming, paidContent 2011; The Next Decade in Digital will convene first thing Thursday morning in New York. If you’re unable to join in the on-site networking and the hallway dealmaking at TheTimesCenter, you can stay up to speed with thoughtful programming by following our live stream starting at 8:30 a.m. Eastern.
The lineup is a mix of timely Q&As and panels centered on key issues facing the industry, from ad targeting and paywalls to the impact of Google’s algorithm tweak and the search for hyperlocal dollars. Lauren Zalaznick will fill us in on the Comcast-run NBCUniversal; Dan Rose will talk about Facebook’s role as a media portal and partner; Nick Denton will explain the decision to remake Gawker — and to row it back, Arianna Huffington and Tim Armstrong will update us on AOL’s acquisition of The Huffington Post; Greg Clayman will shed some light on The Daily one month in. Only attendees will see the lunch program with Keith Olbermann and Joel Hyatt live; we’ll post the video in coming weeks.
Special thanks to our sponsors Gigya, FreeWheel, Oracle, ThePlatform, *Reuters*, Studio One Networks, Vibrant, Mashery, and *Adobe*
The hashtag for the event is #pc2011.
