Social Media + Marketing = Ketchum Conference!

Location Santos House Party - 96 Lafayette St. NYC

Created By

More Info
Is marketing ruining the internet? Join Ketchum for a day-long conversation / debate about the role companies can (and should or should not) play in shaping online culture. We're bringing geniuses and community leaders from ROFLCon, Buzzfeed, BoingBoing, VICE, Gawker Media, MIT, Harvard, various entities within the marketing world and, hopefully, you, together to collectively try to figure out if th...ere’s a middle ground between what marketers want to offer and what Web users actually want.

9:15 - 10:15 -- Memes, lulz & internet culture

10:15 - 11:15 -- Why geeks matter:

Making the case for why marketers should pay more attention to communities of geeks (not just tech geeks), and less attention to what they perceive to be “the mainstream.”

11:15 - 12:15 -- Mommies, Gamers, Frat Boys & Tweens:
Exploring gender, age & race bias in marketing, particularly around the gap between demographic perception and reality when it comes to some of the most important communities on the Web today.

1:15 - 2:15 -- Big Data and the promise of Web culture:

An examination of what large data sets, mined intelligently, can tell us about how people engage with each other and with information on the Web. The future of marketing just might be hiding where Madison Avenue enters Silicon Valley.

2:15 - 3:15 -- The behavior gap between companies and people:

When companies start using social media, they behave very differently than your average Web user—they talk differently, use different platforms and never quite fit in. But can brands and people ever harmoniously coexist?

3:15 - 4:15 Is there hope? What does a symbiotic future look like?

A look down the road and, hopefully, around some corners, at some ideas for how we might better bridge the gap between the internet of the people and the internet of marketers.

Mark Frauenfelder, the editor-in-chief of BoingBoing and MAKE Magazine

Jonah Peretti, founder of Buzzfeed and the Huffington Post

Alexis Ohanian, co-founder of Reddit and founder of Breadpig

Tim Hwang, co-founder of ROFLCon

Grant McCracken, anthropologist and author of the highly-praised book Chief Culture Officer

Alex Pasternack, editor of Motherboard.tv, VICE Magazine's science and technology culture site

Irin Carmon, blogger for Jezebel

Christine Xu, co-founder of ROFLCon and of Breadpig

Celestine Arnold, creative strategy consultant, expert in social media, gaming and culture
