January 28 - 29, 2011 (Friday - Saturday)
As the program for AAN’s 2011 Web Conference takes shape, it’s clear that next month’s tech confab in San Francisco will be an essential destination for anyone trying to understand what today’s new technology means for tomorrow’s revenue stream.
Already confirmed is digital media heavy hitter Amy Webb, whose highly popular talk, Top 10 Tech Trends of 2011, will break down the top ten technology trends that will shape the upcoming year.
Webb, a former Newsweek and Wall Street Journal reporter, has been advising media organizations and retailers on emerging technology and culture for the past 15 years. She also serves for innovative and forward-thinking panels such as the SXSW Accelerator Advisory Board, the Knight-Batten Advisory Board, and the Online News Association’s Board of Directors.
Some of the other timely sessions we have in store include:

advertisements is key to keeping readers and advertisers. We’ll show you
the importance of behavioral targeting and some tools that get you the
data you need.
