Now that the holiday is over, I am hard at work to secure the remaining open speaking spots at the Streaming Media West show in San Jose in November. We have 113 speaking spots in total and about 70% are already spoken for. We have confirmed speakers from Xbox, MTV Networks, Sling Media, Roku, PBS, Adobe, Motorola, Turner Broadcasting, Revision3, Boxee, Move Networks, All Things Digital, NBC, NHL, GigaOm, Microsoft, Lockheed Martin, TiVo, ZillionTV, EPIX, Amazon Web Services, AP, MobiTV, CNN, Comcast, Verizon, Conde Nast Digital and many others.

Panel Session: Live Broadcasts And HD Video: Can Web Video Ever Scale To TV-Sized Audiences?
This was a session I moderated myself at East and may do again for West, but am open to moderator suggestions as well as speaker suggestions. The focus on this panel will be about whether or not live events can make money, what the business model is, how it relates to TV distribution and whether or not the Internet can truly handle HD quality live events.
Panel Session: How Old Media Is Embracing Online Video and New Media
Looking for a moderator for this session, which contains a nice mix of old and new school media companies on the panel.
