Calvin Lui, CEO of Tumri, is talking about new opportunities for Online Advertising. Tumri is already serving over one billion impressions per month. They are currently only active in USA, but will expand to Europe and Asia this year.
One key advantage of Tumri is that “the platform delivers highly relevant advertising messages to consumers while lowering creative production costs and timelines.”
Here is the Video, filmed a the MMF 2008.
Minfo is the leading mobile / wireless search platform in China. Alvin Wang Graylin is the CEO and Co-Founder of Minfo. They started four years ago and have already reached over 13 million users. They have just signed a cooperation with China Telecom to be the exclusive mobile search and mobile advertising provider. This will give Minfo access to over 350 million China Telecom subscribers, over 100 million with mobile internet access.
Alvin told me about the differences to Internet-based search and how the satisfy the mobile users. Mobile Search is not entering one keyword and get a list of links back, it is more about answering one question. Minfo is offering SMS-based and Mobile Internet based services. Searches via mobile web are taking around 50% of all searches (and 50% via SMS), but is increasing rapidly. They developed a semantic search method and support several languages.
Here is the Video Interview filmed at the Monaco Media Forum 2008:
At the first evening of the Monaco Media Forum 2008 ACCEL Ventures invited to an high-class winetasting with some of the best Sommeliers. Paul Roberts is one of 110 people worldwide who are official “Master Sommeliers”. He was guiding the conference attendees through the list of wines offered during the wine-tasting. I felt a bit like Gary Vaynerchuk from Winelibrary TV, who is tasting wines all day.
We did the Video Interview at the end of the Conference Party at Moods. Note: there had been already lights on and all other guests have left, so I think it was already quite late…
Martin told me that there are more than 300.000 FON Wifi Hotspots worldwide which makes FON 10 times larger than T-Mobile Hotspots. FON Germany is developing slower than other countries due to the german mentality. Martin says that “sharing” Wifi might not the right slogan in Germany. He is suggesting to change the marketing message to “Make money with your Wifi” or “Save money with your Wifi”. He also talked about the new Fonero Router 2.0 for hackers and developers.
Interview at the Monaco Media Forum 2008 with Lawrence Lessig, Professor, Stanford Law School and Co-Founder, Creative Commons. I asked him “How did Creative Commons start?” His speech at the MMF was called “Some Rights Reserved”.
Video Interview with Esther Dyson about her current “Astronaut Training” at Star City, Russia. She is reporting about her experiences and the hard training at Space Adventures on her Flight School Blog.

I am taking part at the MMF 2008 as one of the “architects of the new media landscape”.
The Monaco Media Forum (MMF) brings together leaders of new and old media for two and a half days of high-level discussions about the future of online, broadcast and print communication. Aggressively global in outlook, the invitation-only event focuses on emerging opportunities in technology, distribution and content, as well as the implications for marketing and finance. Now in its third year, MMF is the premier meeting place for architects of the new media landscape.
Tomorrow I will be at the Monaco Media Forum 2009… you can follow me on Twitter during the day and I try to blog a summary at the end of the day.
Here are some more Infos about the Event:
The Third Monaco Media Forum will take place from November 12-14, 2008 at the Monte-Carlo Bay Hotel & Resort in the Principality of Monaco. Some 300 of the world’s key players in both new and “old” media – CEOs of global media groups, financiers, digital experts, entrepreneurs, senior journalists, academics and bloggers – will convene to discuss and debate the digital revolution and its impact on the new media landscape. The discussions take place in the midst of unprecedented technological and financial disruption.
Already one of the world’s key media get-togethers, the MMF is sponsored by Google with the support of the Principality of Monaco. As part of its support, Google will be providing a designated YouTube Web site to showcase the event. The MMF is co-produced by PublicisLive and Monaco Mediax with additional support provided by MMF partners. Partners include Accel, Lenovo, NewspaperDirect, Press Display, Publicis Groupe, and Vivendi, along with Media Partners including News Corporation, PaidContent.org, Vpod.tv, and YouTube.
The Monaco Media Forum 2008 is chaired by HSH Prince Albert II, and co-chaired by the following distinguished media leaders:
Nikesh Arora, President, EMEA Operations and Senior Vice President, Google
Jean-Bernard Levy, Chairman and CEO, Vivendi
Maurice Levy, Chairman and CEO, Publicis Groupe
Ruigang Li, President, Shanghai Media Group
James Murdoch, Chairman and CEO for Europe and Asia, News Corporation
Ben Silverman, Co-Chairman, NBC Entertainment & NBC Universal Television Studio
Niklas Zennstrom, Co-Founder and Co-Chairman, Joost & Atomico
The theme for 2008 is “Media Everywhere: Thriving on Disruption” and the program covers a broad range of today’s most critical issues, to be discussed in plenary sessions including:
State of the Mediasphere
The Rise & Rise of Distributed Media
Big TV in a YouTube World
Think Locally, Act Globally
The Two-Way Audience
Internet 2018: The Road Ahead
The Revolution Will Be Streamed
Some Rights Reserved
The Digital Imperative
The Money Crunch
Shock of the New: Building the Next Disruption
In addition to the plenary sessions, there will also be a series of presentations and demonstrations involving cutting-edge new technology.
On the occasion of MMF2008, Prince Albert will bestow the 2nd Monaco Media Prize, awarded for “innnovative use of media for the betterment of humanity.” Last year’s winner was Bangladeshi journalist Salah Uddin Shoaib Choudhury.
“The Monaco Media Forum is a unique occasion, a serious debate about the future of media with Monaco as a magnificent backdrop,” says John Rossant, Executive Chairman of PublicisLive, co-producer of the event. “The 2008 Forum will be especially fascinating and important, given the extraordinary events which have been taking place in the last few weeks and months.”
“This great event is important for Monaco, when the Principality becomes a capital of global media,” says David Tomatis, CEO of MonacoMediax.

If you talk about a Foto-Community, you might talk about Flickr. But things are changing and Social Media is changing the way people use their content.
Flickr and Facebook launched in February 2004, but facebook kept its platform only for a closed user-group. In Mid 2007 facebook opened its platform to the public and the success story of facebook began.
Flickr reached 2 billion fotos in 2007 and now hit the 3 billion mark in 2008. The quality of fotos on Flickr is great and a lot of professional fotografers us flickr to publish their fotos.
On the consumer generated content side, facebook is growing rapidly. Within the last two years Facebook has become THE biggest Foto-Community worldwide. Its Foto-Application is one of the most favorite application. A year ago there had been 4 billion on facebook, today there are more than 10 billion.
