I was graciously invited to come and talk to the Oslo-edition of the Entertainment Master Class 2013. It’s a course that seems to have a lot to offer professionals within the TV industry; if nothing else, it’s interesting to see that several of the participants are coming back for a second or even third stint…Read more Entertainment Master Class – television on the move

I know I'm in the television and cross media business, and I should be thrilled that people are availing themselves of an increasing amount of media. I should, but in truth, I'm not.
