Peter Stilson – Internet Broadcasting Company
I am immensely surprised at how many major national and international companies started out in Minneapolis. There is more than just a handful, and I wish I knew this information sooner. The newest addition to my limited knowledge on these companies is: Internet Broadcasting Company. IB is almost like graphic design for the televisual, fusing aesthetics and design with business know-how in order to not only connect advertisers with their target audiences online but also bring those audiences accurate, relevant local information in a visually pleasing, easily navigatable way ; this is truly an intersection of business and technology that brings about innovation. To visualize such a business and see the potential in starting it up you definitely need to see outside the box. I applaud Mr. Stilson for seeing potential in such a market. With increasing potential in advertising on the internet I do not doubt that Internet Broadcasting Company will continue to succeed in such a constantly and rapidly growing market.
It's unfortunate that since I have class immediately after IDSC3001 I cannot stick around and speak with any of presenters. It is really a great opportunity (and one of the only) where you can engage with such distinguished and successful individuals.
