A NYC Gaming Conversation: Media + News + Games

Going back to the days of newspapers without Internet and TV without cable, media and news have had a symbiotic relationship with games. With the emergence of the Web, consoles, fantasy sports, social media, mobile computing and HTML5, the options for what's now possible is virtually limitless. How do game developers get their bearings and attempt to navigate this uncharted universe of opportunity? How does a media org move into gaming and make it part of their business and brand?

This panel offers perspectives from media and news organizations about what it's like to evolve partnerships and competencies that are necessary to become a new kind of organization, one that can invent, make and distribute games. Panelists include:

Tim Griggs, Director of Paid Products at The New York Times

John Fox, General Manager at Aol Games.com

Jeremy Caplan, Director of Education, Tow-Knight Center for Entrepreneurial Journalism at CUNY Graduate School of Journalism

    Hi all, last night John Fox mentioned inviting NYC Gaming Meetup members to their upcoming event. I don't recall seeing the email. Would someone mind sending the link?

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
