The Future of Real-time Publishing The methods by which information is gathered, published and consumed has dramatically matured over the past year. Digital technology now empowers each of us with the means to share news and information instantly. Protests erupt in the Middle East and we look to Twitter for eyewitness accounts. Political scandals erupt in the blogosphere well before they’re covered by mainstream media. News now breaks in real-time, often with more frequency, and pitfalls. News at the speed of Twitter is maturing — the medium is maturing, journalists are maturing, and the consumers are maturing, too.
What happens when the citizenry becomes the purveyor of information? How are today’s journalists preparing for tomorrow’s world? Who verifies the information? The Future of Realtime Publishing will explore the evolution of our media ecosystem as we transition from a “one-to-many” to a “collaborative based” news society.

Event Summary: It takes more for a restaurant to succeed then just knowing how to prepare the perfect dish or serve the most trendy cocktail. Creativity is expected not only in the kitchen, but also in knowing how to market your brand, connect with the customer and of course bloggers who are critical to the social element of food/foodies online.
With traditional newspaper food pages shrinking, the industry has grabbed onto social media as the next great movement. Yet, although anyone can initiate a viral campaign, it does not mean it will spread. How do you share your story and stand out from the crowd? On August 31, 2010 we explored the future of food.
Download a list of questions from the Moderator.
On Tuesday August 31, 2010 we’ll explore trending topics in the production, promotion and consumption of food. Emphasis will be placed on changes in the relationship between the service provider and customer. Additionally we’ll explore trending topics including food trucks, underground supper clubs, local sustainability, and more.
A few topics we plan to cover: - What does it take for a restaurant to succeed with social media? - Tainted eggs and food safety… Is the industrial system broken? - Food trucks are everywhere! What’s all the fuss about? - Sharing what we eat and where we eat it… but why? - Local, Sustainable, Organic… Hype or here to stay?

Event Summary: The potential for brands (local & national) to connect and engage with consumers is greater now than ever before. On June 7th, 2010 we explored the future of location based marketing. Details: Location based services (LBS) are all the rage these days. Is geo-location hype, web 3.0 or something in-between? What innovative ways could location awareness impact marketing and advertising? Who stands to benefit more, large brands or small business (mom & pops)? Which LBS offerings (Foursquare, Gowalla, Pegshot, Loopt, Brightkite, etc.) are most applicable for my agency or business?
