Talking Points:  From breaking news and financial
action to feature articles and full-length books, the
Web has altered forever the way the printed word,
audio and video are produced, disseminated and viewed
on a daily basis. 

"The State of Online Publishing" forum will explore
three key aspects of new media publishing: Content,
Business Models and Future Technology. In examining
these areas, the panel members will discuss such
questions as: Has the 24-7 news cycle --  or the
increased competition it creates -- degraded the
depth and perspective of journalism?  Have "strategic
alliances" and "content aggregators" created more or
fewer gatekeepers of information? 

The panel will also address: The future of Internet
publishing -- consolidation or increased
fragmentation? The newsrooms of tomorrow -- how will
new technologies shape the news gathering process?
The Internet as a news breaker -- will content begin
to flow from online to print, instead of print to
online? These questions and more will be considered
during this rousing CyberCocktail.

Info: Event is $10 per person (free for NPC members).
