  • What the Internet Finds Funny: Creating & Covering Humor Online

    by Sam Reich, Christine Friar, Adam Frucci, Doree Shafrir and Jesse David Fox

    Web comedy is more than YouTubes of stand-up sets and GIFs of sleepy cats; the popularity of sites writing about comedy, aggregating web humor and putting a satirical spin on breaking news is skyrocketing. Doree Shafrir (Executive Editor, Buzzfeed), Adam Frucci (Editor, Splitsider), Sam Reich (President of Original Content, CollegeHumor), Christine Friar (Associate Editor, Huffington Post Comedy) and Jesse David Fox (Freelance Writer/New York Magazine's Vulture/Splitsider) talk about writing funny things, writing seriously about funny things, writing humorously about serious things and how comedy's increasingly shaping the growth of web media.

    At 3:30pm to 4:30pm, Sunday 11th March

    In Room 12AB, Austin Convention Center
