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.

PARALLEL SESSIONS –
Consumer Web – Is Print Dead?
Friday, May 15, 2009
10: 30 AM – 11:45 AM
Massive layoffs and bankruptcies. Reduced publishing and shifted web-print balance. Clustering, consolidations, and outright closings. All in 2008, the future of our greatest news sources is in flux. Are these brilliant opportunities disguised as insoluble problems? Our panelists will discuss and debate an issue that effects you at home and at work: what, if anything, can save the print industry?
