The Future of Media is in Your Hands

The recent Future of Media Conference generated over 1200 tweets, with the majority originating from mobile phones. What's the future of media? Well, that in part sums it up. Mobile and on-demand. If this GSB student-organized event, the most tweeted in the school's history, drove one thing home, it is that the future of media to a large extent depends not only on the industry-leading companies that participated in the conference, but the ingenuity and ambition of the over 500 participants, including the many first- and second-year MBA students in attendance. In perhaps a telling sign, the conference was book-ended by keynote events led by GSB grads David Fischer, vice president, Business and Marketing Partnerships at Facebook, and Hunter Walk, director of product at YouTube, exemplifying how integral the GSB has been and will continue to be as the media industry evolves over the coming decades.

It's tough to sum up the future of media in 140 characters or less, but here's some of the most popular tweets of the day:
