I will be in Australia in May and thought to invite local readers to join me for a few hours of in-depth discussion on the future of our industry.
I plan to have an event in Sydney on the 3rd in the morning (9:00 to noon at the Radisson Blu 27 O’Connell. Press Room) and in Melbourne on the 6th in the afternoon (1:30 to 4:30 PM at Victoria University City Flinders Campus: Level 12, Function Room 4, 300 Flinders Street, Melbourne, VIC, 3000).
Nominally, the topic will be: The history and future of computing using disruptive analysis.
I will present recent material (including the latest data from Apple) and we will have a few hours of Q&A.
Tickets are $120 and seating will be limited to 100.
You can register here: Asymco Workshops Australia 2013.
We take on the future of TV again, given the developments and experiments hitting the news. Hanging in the air like a big matzah ball is the question of a catalyst to bring long form video to the age of software. Not just digital production and distribution but an integration of software into the product itself. We get there via a quick recap of Asymconf California.

Show Notes & Links
My thanks to all those who made Asymconf California the best Asymconf ever. We had over 200 attendees and, for the first time ever, 50 workshop participants and a panel session. The venue was spectacular: IBM’s historic Almaden Research Center and special thanks to Paul Brody of IBM for making it available.
Engagement was stronger than ever and I believe we moved the ball forward on a range of topics: The workshops helped solve some of the mysteries related to Amazon valuation and the main event looked at the limits of growth. The State of the Union took a look at the post-PC world and Apple’s inflection point. The panel session took on the future of TV and, including the audience, we had input from some of the most influential companies in the space.
We will scramble to make the proceedings (in the form of an iPad download) available as soon as possible.
Normal blogging and tweeting will now be resumed.
Asymconf California is a week away. The workshops are sold out but we still have 20 seats available for the main event.
Don’t leave it to the last minute. Sign up now.
If you are available January 29th and/or 30th in the San Jose area we could use your help.
We need eight people to help with registration, microphone relay, guides.
We also need five people to act as Camera Operators – we will provide Cameras and training, but any experience is a bonus.
We also need an Audio Mixer Operator – experience as a DJ is enough.
In exchange for a day of hard labor you’ll get:
- Access to event (when not busy)
- Access to reception and meals
- A collectable Asymconf t-shirt
