Hyperlocal News: A New of World of Journalism, Sustainable Business Models, and the $30B Local Ad Market promises to be a very interesting NYC panel session. As board organizer of the event for MITEF-NYC, I am pleased to have a very strong and diverse mix of panelists, and look forward to some stimulating dialog. Aside from major players like the NY Times and Patch, we have a smaller startup, the Alternative Press, and Outside.in, a technology/infrastructure provider.
A very nice preview article on the event, and on the MIT Enterprise Forum, was published today by The Alternative Press.
I have been involved in various online news services since the late '80s.
As readers of this blog know, one of my recent projects is a radically new pricing process for digital media called FairPay. This has strong potential for news services, including hyperlocal ones. More on that is on the sidebar.
Of course I will be at the event, and will be happy to discuss FairPay with anyone there.
