The only constant in the modern media business is chaos. We can all agree we’re in the midst of an historic and seismic shift in which all media becomes digital, but the business models, technologies, winners and losers that will define that digital era are very much up in the air.
At paidContent Live on Wednesday in New York, we’re convening some of the people most responsible for that disruption as well as those tasked with turning big media companies on a dime. That schedule includes upstarts like Chet Kanojia, founder and CEO of Aereo, who has the old broadcasting powers scrambling to quash his innovative startup in the courtroom. It involves financiers like Lerer Ventures’ Kenneth Lerer, whose firm has backed buzzy media startups like Branch and Buzzfeed. And it features publishing veterans like Andrew Sullivan, who is attempting to remake the concept of paid content.
