A full agenda at paidContent Mobile: Platform Power kicks off at 8:30 this morning with new research from Nielsen and a Q&A with MLBAM CEO Bob Bowman and winds up with R&D: The Road (Map) Ahead. The New York Times‘ Nick Bilton, author of I Live in the Future: & Here’s How It Works,will join us for that closing session, along with Sara Öhrvall, Director of Global Research & Development, Bonnier, who came to media R&D from creating concept cars at Toyota and Volvo, and Michael Adamson, VP, New Products & Services, Turner Sports, who has led or been involved in developing the digital presence for the NCAA March Madness on Demand, the NBA, Nascar.com, Golf.com and more.
