6:30PM: DigitalFlashNYC Networking Event on E-Readers

Kindle, Nook, Sony E-Reader, the Apple tablet (maybe?). Electronic “books” are rapidly changing the way we read information. Popular Science Magazine is developing a revolutionary way to view magazines and they want you to tell them what you think. Is this a good idea? How does this effect digital marketing? Just as the internet changed the way we could market, will e-books do the same?

Come see what the Popular Science guys have to say and give your 2 cents – trust us, they want your feedback!
