Come See Me at the Google UC Berkeley Media Tech Summit

Apparently, Google does care about the future of news. The Internet search giant is co-hosting a Media Tech Summit at the Googlepex with the Graduate School of Journalism of the University of California at Berkeley from Sep. 29-Oct. 1.

The organizers have put together a great line-up of senior execs from the media and tech industries, including former News Corp COO Peter Chernin, Google’s Marissa Mayer, Apple expert Gene Munster of Piper Jaffray, Yahoo! Executive Vice President Hilary Schneider, investor John Thornton of Austin Ventures, and a lot of other top-notch folks.

I’ll be there moderating a panel on new business models at 10:15 am on Oct. 1. Panelists include:

Free to Premium – Marshall Van Alstyne, Professor of Economics, Boston University
Why Long Tail Won’t Work – Jeffrey Ulin, UC Berkeley Haas School of Business
The Models for Facebook and Twitter – Fred Vogelstein, Wired Magazine
Non-Profit Funding – Ellen Weiss, Vice President for News, NPR
