portrait-bonnie-fuller1.jpg

The inaugural Cross Media NYC conference hits the city in March with the goal of helping media folks effectively package content across platforms, like gaming, the Web, mobile apps, and video. HollywoodLife.com’s Bonnie Fuller, Alistair C. Mitchell of Research In Motion Limited (the folks responsible for your Blackberry performance), and Jeff Gomez, CEO of Starlight Runner Entertainment, have all been confirmed as speakers. Gomez is the man behind Coca-Cola’s music-oriented Happiness Factory campaign.

Wait. “Open Happiness” was co-written by Cee-Lo, remixed by Polow Da Don, and features Janelle Monae and Travis McCoy? Why am I just now hearing about this? (Oops! Forgot I had DVR. No commercials.)

Cross Media NYC happens March 10 at Scholastic Theater. Read the full release after the jump.

LAT in 90 Seconds

mamet.jpgDavid Mamet Likes Hollywood: Never mind that Speed the Plow — his play that opens tonight at the Geffen — and his book Bambi vs. Godzilla are not exactly love letters to Tinsel Town (his book includes a passage about execs who keep films “in development,” saying, “This is the fig leaf of propriety covering, if I may, not the genitals of artistic potential but the empty space where they once lay.”), never mind all that. Mamet tells the LAT: “I love the movie business. I’m crazy about it! It’s the most fun in the world.”

how_i_wrote_that_song.jpgAd Space: It’s not anything close to a slow news day, but we were struck nonetheless by an ad on this morning’s site: LAT and BMI on Saturday are co-sponsoring a panel discussion with the likes of Cee-Lo and John Legend called “How I Wrote That Song.” We’d like a second panel discussion with the folks in marketing called, “How I Came Up With This Odd Idea.”
