Liz Lawley, David Weinberger, George Siemens, Will Richardson and Doug Thomas were my new friends and fellow panelists last week at the Milken Institute Global Conference. It was quite an experience. It’s not often that mealtimes are had in the company of nobel laureates (lunch), champion athletes (dinner), and drinks, investment bankers and astronauts. Themes ranged from bird flu preparation to M&A activity in Asia. There was also a lot of focus on internet technologies; it seems that the entertainment industry has figured out it’s a broadcast medium (seem familiar?). My favorite moment from the conference was probably Wesley Clark telling a fellow panelist from the current administration’s intelligence community, about Iraq: “You broke it, you own it.” More soon. After we’re done w/ OnHollywood.
