I’ll cut to the chase, vote for me HERE. What is this? Well, let me tell you.
I had such a good time at SXSW Interactive this year that I wanted to see if I could put together a panel that was both exciting and entertaining. No offense to the other panels, but I didn’t want to just have a handful of talking heads discussing the benefits of social media or location-based marketing. Nope, when you leave my proposed panel, you’ll have an understanding of where things are going and how they’ll get paid for.
My thought is this: let’s get down to the nitty gritty of making money in the new era of media. And who is the most honest new generation broadcaster? Adam Carolla. Ask Adam how much money he’s making, exactly what it costs to produce his podcast, what mistakes he’s made, what the next plan is, and he’ll answer.
My vision for this discussion is part information and part Adam doing his show live… in Austin!
I know he doesn’t have all the answers. But he’s the closest thing we’ve seen to a new era of radio. And in a perfect world, we’ll pull in some others who are figuring it out too like Adam Curry, Leo Laporte, and Kevin Rose.
And we’ll have fun. Because all of these guys seem to have fun first and make money second. But they know that they need money to keep it going.
So please help make this panel a reality. I need your votes to make it past the next round.
If I get this panel off the ground, and you are not able to make it, I’ll do everything in my power to get it recorded (or at least transcribed) so that everyone can learn even if you aren’t there.
