Chief Executive Officer at ScribbleLive
Michael De Monte started in the new media business in 1983 just before Apple revolutionized the world of publishing with the introduction of the Apple Macintosh. He remembered buying his first 128K Mac (that’s kilobytes by the way, not megabytes) and thinking – this will change everything.
Since that day Michael has been a part of every major publishing revolution. The end of typesetting with digital page layouts, CD-ROM’s as the new medium for big data, desktop video and the studio in your lap, the internet and the dawn of community, and today the age of social.
In 2008 while working at the largest media company in Canada and overseeing over a dozen Content Management Systems, Michael witnessed barriers that impeded the newsroom and content creators, and envisioned a product that would encourage real-time collaborative storytelling. That year, he, and cofounder, Jonathan Keebler, started ScribbleLive.
A thought-leader in the digital media industry, Michael is a frequent speaker on many topics including content marketing, real-time storytelling, and the second screen. Michael has spoken at several popular events including OTT Con, The Inbound Marketing Summit, CMO Exchange, and DX3.
