The Wall Street Journal released their report from the Walt Mossberg’s CEO love-in from a few weeks back.
(FYI – “The D” is a small conference for executives from large companies and essentially is a series of discussions and interviews conducted by the Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher.)
Interviews include Bill Gates, “who showed off a dramatic new version of the dominant Office software, took shots at search rival Google, and declared the network-TV business dead,” Robert Iger (Walt Disney CEO), “who didn’t agree with him,” Sir Howard Stringer (Sony CEO), who was indicted by Martha Stewart for cluttering her life with wires, and Barry Sonnenfeld, (Movie Director) who thinks the movie to DVD release window is too short.
Much of this year’s conference was devoted to the changing media landscape and the disruption that technology is creating for old business models.
If you have a WSJ subscription, the D conference report is essential reading. I’ll provide some highlights in subsequent postings.
