“Media is moving from offline dollars, to digital dimes, to mobile pennies ... That’s where I think all of us has to worry about … it’s happening faster than anybody can imagine … that leads to the other kind of competition - audience … you have to have global optimized for tablet, smart phones … must have a good product and a responsive audience regardless of your delivery system” ~~ Elisabeth DeMarse, Chairman, CEO and President, The Street, first group panel, "Adapting to Changing Media Platforms," at DeSilva + Phillips DEALMAKERS SUMMIT
