What’s Happening in Scandinavia?

In October, I had the pleasure of attending and speaking at the Nordic Media Summit in Copenhagen, organized by Xstream. Xstream’s Frank Thorup and Brynhild Vinskei put on a terrific event, featuring speakers from the region’s leading newspapers and broadcast/cable networks, including Norway’s Telenor, which with Xstream has put together an on-demand service for internet-enabled TVs that is the slickest, easiest to use interface I’ve seen. I talk a bit about that in the interview here*, along with the differences between the U.S. and European markets, as well as what U.S. companies can learn from their European counterparts. Watch this space for interviews with other speakers from the event as they become available.

*I had originally embedded the video here, but for some reason that wasn’t working, so it’s best to view the interview on the Xstream site.
