Brain Bleed Panel on The Future of Journalism (among others)

Not going to lie - I see big nerd names that make my brain bleed and I jump at the chance to see them in action. Last month the Creative Coalition hosted a panel discussion on the future of  the creative industry, which currently makes up 8.5% of the workforce. That includes any profession from acting to journalism, to the guy that drives the set golf cart - so my ears perked up.

It was a pretty impressive panel with big names like, Paris Barclay, First Vice President, Directors Guild of America and Emmy-Award winning Movie and Television Director and Producer, Thomas L. Friedman, Foreign Affairs Columnist, The New York Times, Bill Ivey, Director of the Curb Center for Art, Enterprise, and Public Policy at Vanderbilt University; former chairman of the NEA, and author of Arts, Inc.
Stephen E. Siwek, Principal, Economists Incorporated and author of Video Games in the 21st Century: Economic Contributions of the U.S. Entertainment Software,  and moderated by: Judy Woodruff, Anchor, The NewsHour on PBS

The question they were looking to answer is where is the industry heading, what jobs are at risk, and what can be done.
