Life After Digital


The First Event

The first Life After Digital forum was held on April 23, 2009. A group of four journalist-entrepreneurs came together to talk to a crowd of 100 media pros about how journalists can make practical use of digital publishing tools.

While creating the event, James Erik Abels founded Three Minute Media.
