Happy Holidays: #BKchats saved media & marketing with tech (and tweets)

Typewriter

While many media and marketing professionals lament how technology has made life more difficult, there is a case to be made for how tech can actually help save these industries (we’re certainly hoping so, – ed.).

Earlier this month, BetaKit hosted a Twitter chat with StackAdapt, inviting other industry leaders to discuss whether tech could truly save media and marketing. Erin Bury, managing director at 88 Creative, Jerrid Grimm, co-founder of Pressboard Media, Jeff Brenner, co-founder at Pressly, and Jodi Brown, director at MediaCom Canada, joined StackAdapt co-founder Vitaly Pecherskiy to discuss monetization, the competitive attention economy, and emerging tech for marketing and media.
