>play: Peer into the Future of Digital Media, Oct. 17

Mozilla CEO John Lilly is among the featured speakers who will address the annual >play Digital Media Conference on Saturday, Oct. 17, at the Haas School.

From microblogging to crowdsourced content, from augmented reality to massively multiplayer gaming, the digital media space has never been so rich with possibility. >play is now in its fifth year of bringing together creative professionals, industry leaders, and students to explore such topics and discuss the emergence and implications of the digital lifestyle. Last year’s conference drew over 400 professionals and 100 students to the Berkeley campus.

This year’s conference will expand to include multiple themed tracks, each featuring a series of panels and speakers. Tracks include Mobile & Cloud, Media & Entertainment, and Identity & Innovation.

The conference, which runs from 8:00 a.m. to 6 p.m., also will give students the chance to network with industry leaders and will offer a sneak peak at the latest gadgets at an interactive expo.
