AlwaysOn Media Conference NYC
I woke up at 4:45 this morning to a ringing alarm clock and Shannon nudging me to wake up. Why was I getting up so early you ask? Quite simply because I was going to the AlwaysOn Media Conference. The GoingOn network first caught my eye in a big way last year when my friend Eric Rice was blogging from the AlwaysOn Hollywood event. An even in which Hollywood and Silicon Valley collide in a good way. So when Kathy from AlwaysOn contacted me about covering the Media conference in NYC I lept at the chance. Not only did I leap but I brought out Andrew Shotland (formerly of InsiderPages) and Evan so there will be plenty of coverage on MarketingShift. Expect several posts throughout the day each day through the end of the conference. I'll be ducking out a bit early on Wednesday because Wednesday is my daughter Piper's 4th birthday and there's no way I'm going to miss that. So consider this my heads up and get ready to meet the disruptors of marketing, advertising, branding and PR (aka the new media) via mshift over the next couple of days.
The event begins tonight with a 6:00 session on surviving the media disruption and will feature Moderator: Bill Cleary, founder, CKS Partners, Eric Hippeau, Managing Director, Softbank Capital, Peter Hirshberg, Chairman, Technorati, and Steven Yee, SVP, Reuters. Shortly after that at 7:30 - 9:00 there will be a AO Awards and Reception. Should be an action packed evening and I'm looking forward to catching up with several people during the event.
So thanks to Tony Perkins and the AlwaysOn team, can't wait to see what you have in store.
