The following is a panel from New York Comic Con, titled “Screen Future: Gaming, Comics, and TV around the world and 5 years from now.” Panelists are Brian David Johnson (Intel Futurist and author of “Screen Future“), Craig Engler (Senior Vice President and General Manager, Syfy Digital, Syfy), Cory Doctorow (sci-fi author and blogger on boingboing), and Jim Shooter (comic writer, editor, and publisher currently at Dark Horse Comics).

The panel discusses how the entertainment industry has changed and continues to evolve, focusing mostly on comics, television, and web media. They discuss the quality of television versus web series, integration of social media, interactive storytelling, how advertisers work, and so on. And, of course, they share their hopes for the future. Questions from the audience cover topics such as accessibility of content, the usefulness of Nielsen ratings, and net neutrality.

I was a little bit late into the panel room – forgive me – so we join the conversation while the panelists are talking about advertising revenue on web media versus television.

Please note:  This episode carries an “explicit” tag due to a handful of instances where a panelist uses profanity for emphasis.
