The Future of Entertainment


Last year I covered the fascinating Futures of Entertainment conference at MIT, where panelists discussed everything from user-built game worlds to the rise and fall of Friendster. I won't be filing a dispatch from this year's conference, but I thought I'd let Reason readers know that it's going to take place November 16-17 and that fewer than 50 seats are left. This year's topics include cult media, the future of advertising, and the uneasy position of fans' uncompensated labor in the commercial marketplace. For more details, go here.
