Vectors of Change in Television and New Media — video of speech from 5D

In October 2008, I was invited to give a talk at the 5D conference in Long Beach, CA.    Here’s the clip.

I had a great time at 5D.   I met terrific people, including brilliant speakers, visionary designers, committed event organizers and the director of the excellent contemporary art museum.   I learned a great deal, and saw some brilliant examples of the future of TV.   I’d recommend 5D to anyone who is interested in the future of mass media and digital media.  Check the conference out at :   www.5Dconference.com
