Speaking of: How to Start a Media Company

LT Boa Web size.jpg

At parties and events, some entrepreneurial journalists (is that an oxymoron or what?) have started to ask “How do you start a media company?” and I’ve even considered writing a book on the subject. But, in the meantime, if you want my thoughts (and the insights of Arianna Huffington, Craig Newmark and a few other luminaries), you can attend this Media Talk on November 7th at 6:30 pm..

Since David Carr is the moderator, I’m sure it’ll be a bunch of softball questions, too :)
Details after the jump.
