Mike McCue, the CEO of Flipboard, has been reinventing the way we get our news since the earliest days of the Web. At Flipboard, he bet the startup’s fate on the iPad. It now has more than 100 million users on tablets and smartphones around the world—and it’s working with publishers to create new ways for readers to find the news that matters to them.
Join ReadWrite editor-in-chief Owen Thomas for ReadWriteMix - an evening conversation with McCue about the future of media and how we’ll consume it. They’ll be talking about the tension between using editors and algorithms to find great content, Flipboard’s recent acquisition of the newsreader Zite, and what the future holds for truly rich digital media experiences.
Doors open Wednesday August 13 at 6PM, and the program starts at 6:45PM. Tickets cost $15 and drinks will be served. All proceeds benefit Girls Who Code—a group that works to inspire, educate, and equip girls with the computing skills to pursue 21st-century opportunities.
