Last night I was at the opening night reception of the paidContent one-day conference about the future of business media.  The reception was at the Frank Gehry-designed IAC headquarters in the Manhattan.

Rafat told me that the future of buisness video will involve more story telling and investigative pieces.  We agree.

I just got back from the conference at the Waldorf.  It was extremely informative.  David has been furiously editing segments which we will be posting shortly.   Check paidContent for updates on the conference, including confirmation from IDG that The Industry Standard will be relaunched in December as an online "community."  The Silicon Alley Insider has some good coverage.

Grab this video of my chat with Rafat.
