Seth Shapiro's Business Innovation Blog

Keynotes from Barry Diller and Rupert Murdoch were interesting and entertaining. Attendees were a cut above as well.

Most interesting among Murdoch’s comments were his take on the decline of the newspaper as a family institution, one shared around the breakfast table (Page 3 girls and such I guess). Comments about succession? “I plan to live forever.” Most refereshing: his obvious relish announcing that Fox had closed with Sasha Baron Cohen on Borat II. Murdoch said he’d seen it three times. As dark as he may be, he’s a tough guy not to like on stage. Guess that’s what Faust said.
