New Media Days – Old Media Audience

In Denmark – we have a 100% tax sponsored national radio, tv and www.dr.dk – it’s second to none the most amasing television and radio and web you can find. Journalist are top dogs and the quality of the entertainment-  the produce is killer. On top of that the kids content is propably the best in the world (but only in Danish). This institution (Danish Radio) also run a yearly event called http://www.newmediadays.dk/

“New Media Days is where Scandinavian professionals from both traditional and new media converge to create the media of tomorrow. The event takes place in Copenhagen on October 8-9 2008 and will bring together more than 800 participants from all parts of the media world.”

– a pretty good event (you can say that its Reboot 24 months delayed – but Reboot is always extremely forefront – so that OK). What really really makes me wonder – is the fact that they yesterday gave the Special Price of Hornor to Lisbeth Knudsen – head of Berlingske Media – stating that she’s has done something special over the last years for the industry – reality is that they have done some beautifull websites and some pretty interesting restructuring but NOTHING SPECIAL consindering that they are a media company. That so fucked up. They could have given Lisbeth the price for being one of the most intelligent Danes – but the audience really showed how little they have interest in New Media by this choice – straight crazy.

DBA should ofcourse have had the price (transforming a paper to the most profitable Danish online company – but they dont do conferences – they work hard) or
Mygdal (one man army innovating for real – and challenging the whole world with his persistant brilliant mind)- or
Euroinvestor.dk (very profitable) or
Freeway should have been reelected – or
Mediaprovider.dk‘s founders – or

Ekstra Bladet (Soren is good and smart – and get insane CPM for showing naked Girls (side 9 is about 33% of all trafic) ;)

And I dont even want to comment on the fact that DR’s own website Bonanze won a price as well…
