Vox Media's Bankoff, Twitter's Stanton and Fullscreen's Strompolos Join Code/Media San Francisco

This is going to be an excellent evening. See you there.

Peter Kafka covers media and technology, and their intersection, at Vox. Many of his stories can be found in his Kafka on Media newsletter, and he also hosts the Recode Media podcast.

In February, we’re bringing together some of the most interesting minds in tech and media for our Code/Media 2015 event. It’s going to be great.

But you don’t have to wait until then to get into a room with the tech and media world’s most dynamic leaders. Next month, we’re hosting Code/Media San Francisco, and you should join us there, too.

This is the last of three intimate evening events we’ll be hosting this year. We’ve already had great gatherings in Santa Monica and New York, featuring everyone from YouTube royalty to Silicon Valley’s chief satirist to the head of the country’s most powerful cable channel. Former New York Times editor Jill Abramson debuted some special jewelry for us, too.

Expect more of the same in December, as we interview these great guests:

  • Jim Bankoff’s Vox Media is home to some of the highest-profile sites on the Web, including the Verge, SB Nation and Vox. He’s also one of the most prominent examples of a new breed of Web publishers — one that’s happy not just to make content, but to make its own technology platform, too.
  • Katie Jacobs Stanton heads up Twitter’s media team, which means she’s the one in charge of getting even more publishers, TV networks and celebrities to use her platform — and giving them new tools to use when they get there. She also has to convince them that Twitter is going to remain a partner, not a competitor.
  • George Strompolos’s Fullscreen is already one of the biggest networks on YouTube, generating billions of views a month — that’s why AT&T and the Chernin Group bought his company earlier this year. Now he wants to build a home for his YouTube stars outside of the world’s biggest video site — and convince YouTube viewers that some of his stuff will be worth paying to see.

If you’ve been to any of the Re/code events this year, then you know what to expect: Smart, candid conversations onstage and the chance to meet interesting people before and after the interviews. And if you haven’t spent time with us before, this is a great opportunity to see what we’re up to. You’ll like it!

You can register here. See you soon.
