Is Print Dead? Come See My TiE Panel

Good news: I am moderating a panel at the TiEcon 2009 conference in Silicon Valley on May 15. For those who don’t know, TiE is the world’s largest organization dedicated to entrepreneurship with membership spread across 48 chapters in 11 countries. TiE’s premier annual event is the largest convention in the world dedicated to entrepreneurs. Thousands of folks will be in attendance.

This year, the theme of the conference couldn’t be more timely: The BOLD Entrepreneur. So the event is all about looking for ways to build a business during tough times–a theme I’ve been wring about frequently the last few months.

    I wonder if Sab will make a fool out of himself and NBC again.

  2. May Says:

    Anybody? Did he embarrass NBC again?

  3. Peter Says:

    Actually, Sab was the most impressive of the bunch. They should have put more guys like him on the panel instead of a bunch of 60+ guys who are still living the old age of newspapers w/o any clue on the emergence of digital media.

  4. Augusta Attorneys Says:

    Sab was very impressive actually. That first go round with NBC must have been embarrassing though. lol
