One of the people I met in Australia was author and speaker, Ross Dawson. Ross is an engaging guy with a strong grasp of tech trends and how they are impacting communications techniques, customer interaction and the media. He spends part of his time in Sydney and part in San Francisco and is hosting an event in July called the ‘Future of Media Summit 2006’, simultaneously in those two cities, linking them via video and blogs. Panel topics will include ‘who will journalists be?’, ‘where will the money be?’ and ‘who will control the platforms?’ Sounds like a good event for those interested in the changing face of media and communications.

Great to meet you Ross – looking forward to catching up when you are next in SF.
