I have had the pleasure of attending Futures of Entertainment, the MIT conference founded by Henry Jenkins's comparative media studies department, for the past two years. I found this year's program even more satisfying than the last one, which I wrote about in this hurried dispatch. There's something uniquely compelling about sitting in a room filled with academics and industry vets alike as they grapple with finding a common ground. As a movie guy, I was fascinated by the efforts of the team behind Purefold to create a transmedia storytelling experience out of Ridley Scott's Blade Runner universe, and my heart went out to the efforts of The Harry Potter Alliance. But I was also intrigued by the research of MIT student M. Flourish Klink, who's studying "anti-fans" of Twilight, and the trenchant old school perspective on audience metrix expressed by Turner Broadcasting's Jack Wakshlag, which led to a hilarious hashtag in the midst of his panel.
