Evening Panel Discussion

Many warn of the demise of the Internet economy, but members of the news media are feeling the profound effects of technology on their industry. Newspapers and weekly magazines compete with cable news and dot-coms in an environment where early-morning rumors become earth-shattering headlines by midday. Join prominent American and Japanese journalists as they reflect on the rapid transformation of the news business and discuss what lies ahead for news professionals in two of the most technologically advanced countries in the world. Followed by a Japanese buffet reception.
