Title: "Stunning technology is not enough - there's more to the Future of Magazines"
Guest: Kristina Sabelström Möller, PhD, MSc, Senior Project Manager Business Development at Kvällstidningen Expressen AB
Talk: TV did not kill radio and the Internet does not automatically kill print. It is very easy to be swept away by hyped technology, but far more difficult to find the right business models and to understand the consumption patterns for media. What are the driving forces? And there still opportunities for business and new revenues in print?
