NYC Media Lab Managing Director, Steven Rosenbaum and Director of Partnerships, Erica Matsumoto welcome all attendees to the 2020 Summit and introduce the NYCML team.
NYC Media Lab Managing Director Steven Rosenbaum and Program Associate Anna Gudnason welcome all attendees to Day 2 of the 2020 Summit!
Ten years ago, the city set out to look forward, and drafted a remarkable document: Media.NYC.2020. It posed a provocative question: New York City has more media jobs, and is home to more multibillion-dollar media companies than any other city in the world. But what will the city's media landscape look like in a decade, as new technology disrupts existing business models and emerging markets continue to experience rapid growth?
One of its lead authors was Steven Strauss, who was then at EDC, and is now at Princeton. The report looked decisively forward, and among other initiatives recommended the creation of the NYC Media Lab (yeah!).
So we’re going to gather three extraordinary experts: Strauss, Maria Gotsch who runs the Partnership Fund for New York City, and Justin Hendrix, who just stepped down as the Executive Director of NYC Media Lab after eight extraordinary years.
Together, with Steven Rosenbaum as the moderator, we’ll look back two decades and then jump in a time machine to look 20 years forward. How will New York evolve, change, reinvent, and re-emerge as technologies, companies, and the nature of work changes? Is New York tech and media in danger? How can startups, students, media makers, and New Yorkers across the five boroughs plan for the next chapter in New York’s invention of media and tech? We won’t pull any punches.
The NYC Media Lab returns to recap the week's events, highlight our shared future, and thank you for joining Summit 2020!
