7pm Monday 18th March, Groucho Club, Dean Street
What’s just happened? Buzzfeed, Vice and Huffington Post are laying off staff, the Pool has gone under. But weren’t these the girls and guys who were going to revolutionise big media?
Oh and Facebook has just made record profits. So let’s go under the bonnet and work out how the money works in media, who is winning, who is losing and why - this is more complex than it looks.
Leading the discussion, we have former editor-in-chief of Buzzfeed UK Janine Gibson, Katie Vanneck-Smith, former president of Dow Jones and now editor of the feted slow news venture Tortoise, media analyst Claire Enders, and one more person to be confirmed. They will be discussing various models, including social media, as well as looking at how commercial interests are involved.
