Hello Everyone,

I wanted to let you know about this event which I think most people will
find very interesting. Hope to see you there!

The Digital Asset Symposium (DAS) is being held at the Museum of Modern Art
in NYC on May 8. This unique event brings together a cross-section of
experts from Media & Entertainment, Broadcast, Museums, Government,
Academia and Corporations to engage on the topic of managing, using and
leveraging digital assets. The event focuses on case studies in order to
keep it grounded and pragmatic. DAS promotes a high degree of discussion,
keeping the audience together for the entire day of programming in order to
create an atmosphere that is conducive to sharing and engaging.
