I’d like to formerly introduce a few of our WebTV tracks. You may not have noticed, but we are dedicating two full rooms on all three days of our show this year to the WebTV industry. WebTV represents one of the newest, but rapidly growing parts of the entire content creation, new media landscape.
WebTV content creators are pushing the boundaries of new media in the same ways blogging or podcasting has helped to redefine audio and publishing. You might be a blogger or a podcaster creating great content, community, and commerce; but you should definitely check out some sessions right here in the WebTV track and plan to learn some great new skills.
Here are a few highlights from the WebTV track. Want to see the entire lineup? Click here.
