Keynote at Israel Business Conference 2007

I had the pleasure to keynote a panel at the Globes Israel Business Conference 2007. Globes is the biggest business daily in Israel, and the IBC is the most prestigious yearly business conference in Israel. It included the participation of prime minister Olmert, President Peres, and leaders from business and politics from Israel and around the world.
Here is the session (Full conference program in pdf here , conference website here):

What's new in news?

Print journalism's battle to survive. Do different news media feed off each other? What is the real effect of freesheets as a primary source of information? Innovation in journalism as an economic growth stimulus.

Keynote speaker: Dr. David Nordfors, Senior Research Scholar, Program Director Innovation Journalism, Stanford University.

Innovation Journalism sounds like an interesting field. It is especially relevant with the spread of the internet and a single journalists ability to share innovation with millions of people within minutes.
