An Exceptional Day

In the elegant Julia Morgan ballroom in downtown San Francisco attendees of the EWIP Women’s Leadership Conference and Award Luncheon watched as Kara Swisher accepted the 2014 Exceptional Woman in Publishing Award.

The audience of 250 mostly professional women were charmed by her wit and stories.  She began by mentioning the definition of the “exceptional” and was pleased to discover, that in addition to its meaning as “outstanding, remarkable, and excellent,” it also means “unusual, abnormal, and weird.” Being abnormal, Swisher admitted, has been a positive thing in her profession.

ewip14award-karaswisherSwisher found success by grasping what the Internet meant early on and deeply understanding the consequences of the next new thing out of Silicon Valley. She has chronicled the emergence of digital technologies as the grand disruptor of old media and continues to gain insight, she says, by watching her young sons and other digital natives, interact with media from a whole new set of expectations.

The 2014 EWIP conference featured dozens of speakers in ten sessions covering a range of topics. To learn more about EWIP, watch the videos at our YouTube channel. Video by Stacey McKenzie.

Film Night with Tiffany Shlain

EWIP is delighted to host a film night, Wednesday, September 12th at the Dolby Studios in San Francisco bringing people in media together. Everyone is welcome to join us for an evening of wine, snacks, networking, and a post-screening Q&A with the award-winning director, Tiffany Shlain.

We will screen Connected, an Autoblogography about Love, Death & Technology, a film that is equal parts documentary and memoir and uses a mix of animation, archival footage, and home movies to explore what it means to be connected in the 21st century. Connected unfolds during an especially tumultuous year in which technology and science literally become a matter of life and death for the director.  See the film and stay for a Q&A with Ms. Shlain.
