Moderated by: Wing Yu
Location: Sierra J Level:

Unless the newspaper industry makes serious changes, it faces extinction. Fortunately, web 2.0 has created a number of features, tenets and firms like FinancialContent that can help save and change the industry. The new web has made all kinds of content cheap and easy to: aggregate, syndicate, mass distribute, mass produce, and customize. Learn how to take advantage of this opportunity!

There are several firms in the industry, working with newspapers on helping them minimize content costs through content collaboration. In addition, syndication initiatives provide traffic generation opportunities. New advertising techniques have helped increase site monetization.

A variety of tools and ideas will be needed to save the industry and make change happen. The goal of this session will be to get industry thought leaders to brainstorm and discuss ideas to make effective cost saving and revenue generating changes at newspaper and other traditional media publishers.
