Thriving in the Digital Age: Building a Culture to Win the Future

Modern tech advances have turned traditional forms of news, politics, and all forms of communication on its ears.

In this lively presentation, Huffington, described by Fortune as one of the few people who “get” the Internet, discusses the latest online and social media trends—including how media companies are turning content promiscuity into profits—and reveals her vision of a hybrid future where traditional media and new media become one.
