The next Banter is on November 24th in The Twisted Pepper & the topic for the evening is ‘Publishing 2020‘. Hugh Linehan, John Ryan, Michael McDermott and Blathnaid Healy will give their take on where the publishing industry will be in 10 years time, with Jim Carroll as MC & referee.
PUBLISHING 2020 – It’s the end of the publishing world as we know it and, well, how do we feel?
For those in the media business, it’s a brave, scary world out there. Everything the professionals knew about the who, what, why, how, when and where of getting news and views to the masses has been turned upsidedown and inside out over the last 10 years.
But what about the next 10 years? Where will the media business go from here and what will it look like in 2020? Will topics like citizen journalism, paywalls, Twitter, blogs and Facebook updates still be on-trend in 2020? Will we still be ROFLOLing about pictures of cats? Will people actually be making money from that sort of thing? Actually, scratch that, will anyone be making cash from the media 10 years from now?
The talking heads: Hugh Linehan (Online editor irishtimes.com), John Ryan (Broadsheet.ie and formerly of Blogorrah.com, New York Dog and dozens of other titles), Michael McDermott (Le Cool Dublin) and Blathnaid Healy (RTE) The referee: Jim Carroll
