Matthew Liebmann on media convergence

The media landscape is in a period of transition. The rate of change is arguably unprecedented in the history of knowledge and its dissemination. In this talk, Matthew Liebmann, a prominent media industry analyst, discusses the state of play of a media industry in flux.

Matthew is a director of PricewaterhouseCoopers' Australian Entertainment and Media Practice. In this capacity he has advised many of Australia’s sector leaders in strategic and business planning, marketing analysis, due diligence, risk management and regulatory compliance. Matthew is the principal author of the Australian entertainment and media outlook, the leading publication for the local sector, and is a frequent commentator in the media.

Matthew was a guest speaker at a symposium on the theme of 'The Library of the 21st Century'. The aim of the February 2006 symposium was to generate discussion and provide a range of perspectives on the changing information landscape. The symposium was arranged around four topics: community, learning, collaboration and the creative economy.

This is part one of Matthew's talk.

You can listen to ABC's head of content services Mary Jane Stannus speaking about managing digital content. Her talk was also part of the symposium.
