The fast-changing media landscape, topics spanning the emerging "content farms," payment schemes for online video, micro-payments for news content, and the impact of mobile and e-books, will be addressed at the paidContent media summit in New York on February 19.

Last week, I spoke with paidContent editor and publisher Rafat Ali in his New York offices for an overview of the event.

paidContent:2010 will be held at the New York Times Center.  Only 300 tickets are being sold and many have been snaapped up already, he says.

Beet.TV will cover the event.

This is the first of a three part series of interviews with Rafat, who founded paidContent eight years ago.
