09/09/97 RMIUG Meeting - City Sites - Local Content Coming to a Browser Near You

The Tuesday, September 9th meeting of the Rocky Mountain Internet Users Group will feature a panel discussion on City Sites, including some of the key national players (complete with deep pockets) entering the local content market. Learn how these sites are competing, what they offer the user, what deals they are cutting with local companies, how their revenue models work, and hear it all directly from the people running the show. Bring lots of questions and prepare for an interesting evening of presentations and Q&A.

Our panelists include:

  • Brad Struss (bradstr@microsoft.com), General Manager of Microsoft's soon-to-launch Denver Sidewalk
  • Judy Tobey (tobey007@aol.com), General Manager (ie, Mayor) of AOL's Digital City Denver
  • Meredith Flynn-Ripley (mflynnr@uswest.com), General Manager of US West's DiveIn Denver
  • and Ted Pinkowitz (tap@ecentral.com), President of E.Central with the Big City - Small Planet site.
