April 30, 2013 | About:
The introduction for this discussion with Diller at the 2013 Milken Institute is as follows:

Barry Diller, long a titan of the entertainment industry, has become a titan of services and media on the Web as chairman of conglomerate IAC and Expedia, the well-known travel site.

Now he oversees a wide range of offerings that include search, online dating and local businesses with brands that include,, HomeAdvisor and the Daily Beast.

Diller will discuss the evolution of show business and the future of the Internet economy, including their deepening integration, from a unique vantage point. How has the rare online composite model fared - is "synergy" real? What does e-commerce need to do to bring hesitant consumers online? How do his public service involvements - with the Council on Foreign Relations and medical research at the University of California, Los Angeles - complement his celebrated career?
