Predictions for 2008 Event Recap
Tonight I participated in a panel discussion about what’s coming in 2008. It was hosted by Ember Media and overall I’d say it was one of the most enjoyable evenings I’ve had in a while. The conversation before, during and after the panel was great. It’s always great to meet people in person who read CN.
The Ember Media team did an excellent job in coordination and organization as everything went off without a hitch. Clayton Banks, Ember Media CEO led off with a presentation about his picks for 2008. The truth is that 2008 might be the most exciting year on the Web yet. We may move further along overall this year than we have in the last 3-4 years combined.
The panel discussion followed with panelists: Jonah Bossewitch, Kay Madati and myself. Jonah works at Columbia University and Kay runs marketing for Community Connect which includes sites such as Black Planet which did half a billion pageviews in December 2007.
Some of the topics we discussed include: online advertising, supply/demand with regards to content, privacy, data portability, mobile, barcode technology with regards to advertising and the sematic Web.
Thanks to Clayton for including me and thanks to everyone for coming out.
Here are some of my photos from the evening:
