Attending the D: Dive Into Media Conference

I just got back from California where I attended the D: Dive Into Media conference, held at the Ritz-Carlton in Dana Point.  You may remember me blogging about Wall Street Journal’s D: All Things Digital conference, which was launched in 2003 by creators and executive producers Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher.  In those innovative digital symposiums, the most influential figures in media and technology are brought together to share their ideas.  D: Dive Into Media is the latest brand extension of D: All Things Digital.  Where the latter explores the bigger picture and studies the effect that the digital revolution has had on every facet of our lives, D: Dive Into Media focused on the evolutionary changes that are occurring in media and what those changes mean for the industry’s future.  My COO, Lisa Gersh, and I were asked to speak at the event, which is always a fun experience for me.  D’s signature style is unrehearsed and unscripted, so the interviews are very interesting and unexpected.  I always enjoy hearing what other C-level media executives have to say about technology.
