Eventually we’ll all be connected. By television and the advertising that is done through it.

There was a reason everyone had to go digital. What appeared to be the death of broadcast television advertising may just be the thing that saves it… the internet.

There’s a great group that I’m a part of on LinkedIn called Social TV – The Next Generation. I urge you to join. The yearly World Summit for Connected Television is coming up and the event is going to be an awesome one. The Connected TV Summit is the No.1 event focused on the strategic challenges and opportunities presented by post-convergence TV, covering connected and hybrid broadcast broadband TV, second-screen and multi-screen TV over two days of top-level debate and presentations.
