NEW MEDIA EXPO PRESENTS THE 4th ANNUAL IAWTV AWARDS SHOW
The International Academy of Web Television will honor the best shows on the web on April 15th 2015 in Las Vegas as a part of the NMX / NAB Show
The V in TV stands for “visions” according to Carrie Preston (True Blood), the host of last year’s IAWTV Awards Show. Indeed, it is the visionaries of new media that the IAWTV, created by digital content-creators for digital content-creators, was founded to support. The best of this digital content has been honored at the IAWTV Awards Show the last four years.
“I’m really excited about the awards this year,” admits Jonathan Robbins, creator of Clutch and star of Out With Dad and the head of the 2015 IAWTV Awards committee, “The awards get better every year and I want to continue in that direction.” Robbins is glad to have the support of an experienced cast of familiar faces.

We are very proud to announce the 10th annual Podcast Awards Show will be held April 14th at the Westgate Las Vegas Resort and Casino. This is the latest big day in a series of big days for all of us at New Media Expo.
Many of you know that we have produced the Podcast Awards Show at New Media Expo for the past two years. In 2013 Leo Laporte served as our host in a meeting room with about 300 people attending. It felt like a family reunion. Everyone knew all the inside jokes and everyone knew each other. Continue Reading
Did you see the amazing news about where NMX will be next year? I am beyond excited! That’s why I’m giving you something very special this week. (But you have to read this blog post to find out what it is…)
It’s been a dream of mine to hold our event in conjunction with NAB Show (National Association of Broadcasters) since I first launched BlogWorld & New Media Expo in 2006.
We have all been through a lot over the past eight years. Twitter didn’t exist when we first announced BlogWorld & New Media Expo. Continue Reading
We have heard those questions so many times the last couple of months. I apologize for keeping you waiting so long to hear the answers.
Two hours ago I got an email I had been waiting on for eight years. Since I first had the idea to launch New Media Expo I knew that for new media content creators to get the recognition, respect, credibility and compensation they deserved they had to go into the lion’s den and stand shoulder to shoulder with traditional media broadcasters as equals.
I am extremely proud to share this news with you…..
April 13 – 16, 2015 New Media Expo will be co-located with the NAB Show at the Las Vegas Convention Center and Westgate Resort.
You may have heard me call NMX the NAB Show of the future. Just in case you haven’t, let me explain. NAB stands for National Association of Broadcasters. This is the annual tradeshow and conference where TV and radio broadcasters, film makers and marketers who create audio and video come to every year. It is the place where the latest technologies, tools and strategies are shared. Last year 93,000 Continue Reading
I say we, but I am personally unbelievably excited to announce that NMX we will hosting the New Media Lounge at The NAB Show this April 7-10, 2014 in Las Vegas, NV!
Over the years, you may have heard me say NMX is the NAB Show of the future. Sometimes I would get a blank stare, and the person would ask me, “What is the NAB Show®?”
First of all, NAB stands for National Association of Broadcasters. The NAB Show is where all the filmmakers, radio and TV stations in the world go to get the stuff they need to create, distribute and monetize their content. Any business that creates traditional audio and video like training videos, Television and radio commercials also attends NAB. Continue Reading
There are often very good reasons people and companies must defend their patents. The Patent system protects inventors. When a patent is infringed on, the holder must take action or risk losing their patent. That is how it works when the system is being used properly. Patent Trolls are not using the system as it was designed.
Patent trolls are not in the business of defending their patents. They are in the business of extortion. They purchase broad general patents and then make claims about infringement. They send out letters claiming a patent infringement and asking for “licensing” fees. It is nearly always cheaper to pay the fee than to fight it in court. Often these patent infringement claims would not likely hold up in court but few businesses are able to fund the 1.5 + million it would take to survive a legal battle. Even Apple gave in and settled.
For us non legal folks, that’s known as a shake down.
In 2013 one of these trolls sent letters to several leading podcasters such as HowStuffWorks podcast (Discovery Channel), Marc Maron, Chris Hardwick, Adam Carolla and more. They claim that a patent for their failed “Magazines on tape” Continue Reading
