Calendars... Open! Upcoming Programs, Conferences, Panels & Events

Here are some programs, conferences, panels and events that I have on my radar that you might find of interest as well.


NFL's Commissioner—Roger Goodell: The Business of Sports, NYC

Checking In with the Co-Founder of foursquare, Dennis Crowley (I am co-sponsoring this event)

As social networks and online spaces proliferate, we risk losing contact with the real world. Why go out, when we can access the entire world through Facebook or Twitter? Enter foursquare. Part social network, part city guide, part game, foursquare encourages you to get out and experience your city, while simultaneously participating in online space. "Checking in" to various venues like restaurants, bars, and stores tells your friends where you are and the more you check in, the more badges you can earn. If you have the most check-ins at a particular venue, foursquare names you the "Mayor" -- a distinction many of the New York's restaurants and bars are coming to recognize with special discounts and offers. When co-founder Dennis Crowley checks in to the Harvard Club, he'll give us a special glimpse into foursquare's past, present, and future.


Internet Week 2010 NYC

Mashable Media Summit - still more to watch via Livestream recordings

From On Demand to Always On - How to Reach and Engage a Mobile Audience. Limelight Networks and MTV Networks Talk Mobile Video -- still available via recorded webcast and presentation

What a difference a year makes. Remember when the iPhone had the app store market cornered? When there wasn't a Droid, or a Nexus One? A Kin, or an Incredible? When there wasn't a Nook, or an iPad, or a Slate? The mobile market is changing, and content publishers face a world of complexity in delivering media to audiences on the go.

Limelight Networks CTO of Mobility and Monetization Solutions Jonathan Cobb and MTV Networks Senior Director of Product Development Todd Kennedy discuss evolving market conditions, mobile strategy considerations, and real-world examples of mobile media success.

The webcast covers:
  • Media delivery to mobile browsers and mobile apps across a wide array of devices
  • A range of publisher scenarios from premium television delivery to "how-to" video streams
  • A list of variables to consider when forming a mobile strategy, as well as recommendations for implementation and monetization
  • An in-depth look at how MTV Networks has expanded into mobile delivery with many of its well-known television brands

A Conversation with Jimmy Wales, Founder of wikipedia. (I organized this event on behalf of the Harvard Club of NYC in conjunction with the HBS Club of NYC.)

Is it possible to collect the sum of all human knowledge and make it available to every person for free? Jimmy Wales thinks it is. And as founder of the online collaborative encyclopedia wikipedia, he has made that his goal. With 15 million articles in 271 languages and 680 billion monthly visits, wikipedia is the largest, most popular general reference on the web. So, how is the content on this expansive source of information created, maintained and “policed?” Is this open-source resource reliable or biased? And what is the future of this kind of collaborative web culture?

Come find out through a special interview with Jimmy Wales by media expert Adam Klein (MBA ‘79, JD ’87). A former strategy and management professor at HBS, Dr. Klein teaches at Columbia’s Journalism School and as founder of Media Leader LLC, continues to apply his strategy, innovation and change management expertise to the rapidly transforming media industry.
Mr. Wales was named one of Time Magazine’s 100 most influential people and appointed a fellow of Harvard Law School's Berkman Center for Internet and Society.
