About the event
ITVT is pleased to announce that TVOT NYC 2019, our tenth annual East Coast TV of Tomorrow Show (TVOT) event, will take place Wednesday, December 4th at a spectacular new location: Town Stages, 221 West Broadway, New York, NY 10013.
TVOT NYC packs all the excitement of our flagship TV of Tomorrow Show into a highly focused, dialog-driven, one-day "intensive." As previous attendees can attest (see testimonials), TVOT and TVOT NYC consistently attract a veritable "who's who" of the interactive/advanced-TV, MVPD, OTT-TV/AVOD/SVOD, advertising, broadcasting/programming, TV-news, data/measurement, streaming-infrastructure, consumer-electronics and social-video industries. The show--which is expressly designed to encourage networking and deal-making--has been widely praised for offering a uniquely inspiring, rewarding and enjoyable experience, unlike any other tradeshow or conference.
Over the past few years TVOT and TVOT NYC have become the leading venues for agencies, brands, broadcasters, content-owners and adtech companies to explore the complex interrelationships between audience measurement, big data, and advanced advertising. The shows also provide multiple opportunities for TV and video professionals to examine the potential of significant new technologies, such as ATSC 3.0/Next-Gen TV, 5G, autonomous vehicles, Blockchain, artificial intelligence/machine learning, voice assistants, VR/AR, and more. Additionally, the shows have become one of the very few places where established TV players can meet and network with the creative and business communities that have emerged on YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, Twitch, TikTok and other social-video platforms to address the rapidly evolving viewing habits and programming preferences of Millennials and Gen Z.
As the end-of-year event-of-record for the advanced-TV/video industry, TVOT NYC 2019 will also provide attendees with their last, best opportunity to fully understand the significance of the many industry developments that have taken place in 2019, and to hone their strategic grasp of the key issues that will be shaping the industry in the New Year.

We vet every speaker carefully and every editorial session is highly-crafted. We have a very solid, well-regarded reputation. People tell us that the networking opportunities are "the best in the business." See TESTIMONIALS above.

I am the CEO, publisher, and editor-in-chief of InteractiveTV Today ITVT (http://itvt.com), which I founded in 1998, and am also the co-producer producer and director of the TV of Tomorrow Show conferences (founded in 2007) that occur bi-annually in San Francisco (Spring/Summer) and New York City (late Fall).
My writing has appeared in many leading newspapers and trade publications, including the New York Times, the San Francisco Examiner, PC World, Multimedia World and VR World. Topics I have covered in the past include virtual reality, email communities, privacy and technology, online gravesite memorials, and, of course, interactive television.
Prior to founding [itvt] I was chief evangelist at eGroups.com (now Yahoo! Groups); new media editor at PC World; a producer and director for Telemorphix, a pioneering interactive TV company, and a video producer at Steve Michelson Productions in San Francisco.
A regular presenter at ITV industry conferences and panels, and a frequent guest on television and radio shows, I actively communicate my understanding of the history of interactive TV; its current trends, technologies, content innovations and applications; the complexities of executive leadership and industrial dynamics; and where I think the medium and the ITV industry will and must go in the future to audiences around the world. I have served as the founding chairperson and judge of the "Television" and the "Broadband" categories respectively for The Webby Awards since its inception and regularly produce editorial events and awards programs benefiting the ITV industry (e.g. The annual TV of Tomorrow Show).
Other experiences include voiceovers on many feature films while at Sound One in New York City (e.g. "Hannah and Her Sisters" and "9 1/2 Weeks"); participation in the Director/Playwright Workshop at Playwright's Horizons in New York City with founder, Bob Moss; participation on various experimental technology multimedia theater showcases directed by the visionary George Coates in San Francisco; conceiving, producing, directing the first 3 fashion shows (as interactive theater) on the Black Rock Desert in the early years of the Burning Man project, and directing an episode of the Twlight Zone called "The Obsolete Man" at the Dark Room in San Francisco. In August 2005, I created and directed a politically-charged multimedia "blogtheater" (my word) piece that focused on post-election America called "Fuck That!: The Political Science Show." In my non-spare time, I produce and edit the occasional book such as "Desert to Dream" (a photography book) and "Train of Thought" (a children's book), improve my art car (see below), train as a traditional boxer, and pretend to be a painter. I am also a mother to a wonderful daughter named Hannah.
My education includes a Ph.D fellowship in directing at the University of California, Berkeley; a Masters degree in Dramatic Criticism from Northwestern University; a certificate in French and French Literature from the Université de Cannes; a Bachelor of Arts degree in Theater History from Tulane University; studies in Drama at the Royal Holloway College at the University of London; as well as a high school degree from Culver Military Academy in Indiana.
Originally from Columbus, Ohio, I witnessed the birth of QUBE, the first commercially deployed interactive television platform, and CompuServe, the first commercial online service. I am also the proud creator of an artcar.
