The Media Futures Conference 2009, hosted at Bloomberg, is bringing together leading practitioners in the media industry to share their pioneering work.
The day will explore key questions such as: What media futures would we like to see? Which ideas are feasible? And, how do we create new revenue models? Prominent keynote speakers will spark debate, supported by expert panels, the latest research, and media innovators showing their projects.
John Gilles, VP of Engagement, will discuss Viable Futures
John Gilles, VP of Engagement at Method, will discuss business strategies for IPTV and new content providers, and design as a strategic tool, illustrated by Method's media interface design work for PBS video online and others.
