Is Aggregation Theft?
    Tuesday March 13, 2012 11:00am - 12:00pm @ Sheraton Austin (Capitol ABCD) (701 E 11th St, Austin, TX 78701)
    In the beginning, there was Slate's beloved news roundup, “Today’s Papers.” Then, in 2001, The Week magazine landed in the States with great success and pioneered the art of news and opinion curation in print. But it wasn’t until the Huffington Post crashed the party, generating huge traffic with dozens of rewritten stories from other sources every day, that "aggregation" became a dirty word, and critics began calling it theft. Join top media writers and the trailblazers of aggregation for a conversation
    about the art of filtering and curating other organizations’ content, and where this editorial model fits into the new media landscape. Decide for yourself: aggregation—friend or foe?
