  2. Publishers More Than Just Glorified Banks

    Publishers are often misunderstood and misrepresented as merely bank-style operations who provide an advance for an artist and then simply collect their income while taking commission on the earnings. Experienced pros "de-mystify" exactly what publishers do for their songwriters on a day-to-day basis and speak about some creative initiatives they are taking.

  3. Augmenting Maps with Reality

    Remember when the utility of an online map consisted of directions and gawking at satellite imagery? With the recent tide of location-based apps such as Foursquare and the introduction of the likes of Twitter Maps, maps is rapidly emerging as the gateway to socially exploring the world around us. But that's not all. In this future focused discussion, we'll explore the rise of maps as a social platform and it's potential beyond. This panel is sponsored by Microsoft Bing.

  5. Slow Twitter: Users Who Take Their Time Tweeting

    Slow Twitter is like Slow Food, but much sillier. The people who use the most impulse-driven site for the most thought-out one-liners have created a new art form with its own poetic language, economy of space, and a million ways to joke about being drunk, naked and crying on a Monday.

    A panel of witty Twitter users, moderated by the editor of the book "Twitter Wit," will discuss what goes into writing a good tweet, why Twitter is a legit form of literature, and why already-famous writers and comedians should "waste" their best ideas on Twitter.
