Transmedia – global and personal

A little less than a week ago I published the annual-wrap-up and looking-ahead-to-next-year publication "One Year In Now Media Vol IV". From the start, four years ago, a central part of the publication has been the interviews with creative and intelligent people from different parts of the media field.

Transmedia and the corporate world

As one of the hardest working sellers I know use to say – selling IP to someone as reluctant as your average media…Read more Bringing convergence to the people
