VIDFEST gets Wired with Chris Anderson

New Media BC announced today that Chris Anderson – Editor-in-Chief of Wired Magazine – will deliver the keynote speech at VIDFEST 2008. It sounds like Nexon North America was instrumental in making it possible.

Chris Anderson, considered one of the most insightful thinkers on the new economy of “free”, will address the audience on the model of “giving it away” as a key business strategy for generating revenue. His thoughts on this business model align closely with the new concept of “free-to-play” currently being pioneered in the online game world by Nexon.

VIDFEST programme, registration, passes and ticket information available online with early bird passes available until May 1st.
