    by Bruce Hellman

    The Quantified Self movement is getting lots of interest, with new devices (Nike Fuleband, Jawbone Up), websites (Tic Trac, Track Ignite) and apps appearing. Most products and services are designed from the point of view of the technology; not the end user.

  • The Next Great Industry to Be Disrupted by The Internet - Televison

    by Richard Kastelein

    A Headline I have been waiting for: "Future TV Disruption - Forbes says it's Worth Half a Trillion Dollars For Internet Companies". The intersection (media convergence) of TV, Gaming, Social, and the Web is the space that I work and love to revel in. And am happy to share my thoughts. From Apple TV to Zeebox - Connected TV to Social TV - there's massive changes on the horizon. How can tech startups participate in the some 200 billion pounds in global TV ad spend that coming up for grabs?

    Questions answered :
    What is the next big thing? How will TV and the Internet intersect? What's Connected or Smart TV? What's Social TV? What's Multiplatform Engagement? What's Transmedia? What are TV Apps?

    At 4:40pm to 4:50pm, Thursday 31st May
