Title: "New mindset, new business model"
Guest: Pontus Jeppson, Head of Mobile at IDG Sweden
Talk: IT newspaper Computer Sweden has turned it's business model around by shifting it's focus from being a print publication charging for distribution into being a digital brand charing for content and services. This is one example of how media companies can adapt to new user behavior and new technologies. I will share the story behind that project, and talk about what we've learned form it.
