Social media isn't the only hot category here at the "All things D" conference. Some of the hottest companies here are focused on content — helping consumers navigate the nearly infinite content out there and access exactly what they're looking for.
Groupon revealed some striking growth — revenue of $644.7 million in the first quarter of 2011, up from $44.2 million in the first quarter of 2010, and just $3.3 million in the second quarter of 2009.
Marc Andreessen has invested in pretty much ever social media company — Groupon, Zynga, Facebook, Twitter, he's even an angel investor in LinkedIn (LNKD) — and he says this is not an IPO bubble.
Groupon is expending its reach with another major corporate partnership, this one designed to offer half-priced travel deals. Today at the 'All Things D' conference Groupon and Expedia (EXPE) announced a new discount travel site, called "Groupon Getaways with Expedia."
LinkedIn's CEO is here at the 'All Things D' Conference, and while he's not slated to speak, LinkedIn's IPO is the talk of the conference. Everyone here - from startups to VCs, to media and tech execs is discussing what LinkedIn's massive valuation means for the market.
'World of Warcraft' is the ultimate video game goldmine: its 11 million subscribers pay $15 monthly for the service, giving Activision Blizzard a nice, steady revenue stream from the massive multiplayer PC game. Now, Activision Blizzard is trying to apply the same business model to its console hit, "Call of Duty."
The good news: After fumbling earlier this year, the box office is back on track, thanks to a massive holiday weekend. This was a record-setting Memorial Day weekend — attendance hit 35 million, more than 10 million higher than a year ago, as Americans spent $280 million on movie tickets over the weekend, beating the record set in 2007 of $255 million.
The box office has suffered from one of its worst slumps in years; it's down 12 percent year-to-date from last year. And now we're heading into the most important season for Hollywood.
Internet advertising continues to gain ground — and share of advertisers budgets. Internet ad revenues hit $7.3 billion in the first quarter — a 23 percent increase from a year ago and the highest first-quarter revenue ever, according to the Interactive Advertising Bureau and Pricewaterhouse Coopers.
