[Tele]Vision! II a different viewing perspective


The GarageGeeks sessions with Jeff Pulver and Dror Gill present:

[Tele]Vision! II a different viewing perspective

Following the success of the first [Tele]Vision! session held on April 2007, we will once again bring the best brains together to find out where TV is headed. The format of the session will be quite unique: Each presenter will talk about a topic for 5 minutes, and then lead a Q&A session and discussion for another 5 minutes. There will be no pitching and no company presentations, only pure vision and audience interaction. A peek into some of the topics:

- TV Gets Social (Again)
- From YouTube To Prime Time: It's All About Telling a Story
- Internet TV: Who Sells The Popcorn?
- Over the Top TV: Delivering Content to TVs over the Open Internet
- Investor Perspective: What it Takes to Start a New Media Company

The event will take place on Thursday, December 18th, 20:30, at the GarageGeeks HQ (Hapeled 40, Holon).
