We were thrilled to have Brian Stelter, chief media correspondent for CNN and host of Reliable Sources, headline our kick-off session. After that, we moved to the exciting Spatial.Chat platform for a session with Sona Patel, Director of Community and User-Generated Content at The New York Times.
Saturday began with a roundtable, moderated by Sree Sreenivasan, of leading experts discussing new trends — from the emergence of Clubhouse to the politics of deplatforming, and hitting upon the latest on Twitter, audio-only programs, Substack and newsletters, and other timely ideas. Other sessions featured a variety of formats: interviews with social media stars, panel discussions, fireside chats, lightning talks, keynotes, and workshops.
Topics for the sessions included:
The Latest in Digital Trends | Memes and Media Literacy | Diversity and Inclusion in the Digital Era
Artificial Intelligence and You | Cancel Culture | New Trends in Photography | Social Media & Mental Health
The Future of Work | Creating Community on Clubhouse
