Sarah Brown, Donna Karan, Arianna Huffington Empower Women

The Women: Inspiration & Enterprise symposium on September 20th, hosted by the White Ribbon Alliance for Safe Motherhood, is designed to be a “dynamic new annual conference for women” alongside the Clinton Global Initiative and UN General Assembly.

Hosted by Sarah Brown, Donna Karan and Arianna Huffington, the symposium will focus on empowering women in a new media standpoint while being able to network with like-minded and powerful members of the global community. Much like the educating experience that the May 2010 Women Deliver event profiling filmmaker Christy Turlington Burns‘ documentary No Woman No Cry.

She Said, She Said: Both Sides Now Debuts

The D.C. political machine has a reputation for being a boys club rather than a gentleman’s establishment; but it takes a woman’s touch to actually discuss it.

Well, women to be more accurate.

Both Sides Now, which had a soft release as a podcast, will have its formal launch this Monday in New York according to The Daily Politics. The weekly radio show comes from The Huffington Post’s Editor-in-Chief Ariana Huffington and power pundit Mary Matalin and is hosted/created by Mark Green according to FishbowlDC.

We’re a fan of the tagline (“We Debate…You Decide”) and the Facebook page too. So what’s the premise? Huffington, Matalin and Green taking on the topics in Washington without having to wake up before 10 a.m. on a Sunday?


Steve Jobs: All Things Digital

Apple CEO Steve Jobs wowed the crowd at The Wall Street Journal’s 8th D: All Things Digital conference in Rancho Palos Verdes, California. In 2007, when Jobs last spoke to All Things Digital conference attendees, the world hadn’t touched an iPhone or imagined the iPad. What a difference a few years can make.

Check out what Jobs had to say in these clips of his speech to this year’s sold out D8 conference, including his thoughts on the smartphone market and the love hate relationship Apple has with Adobe’s Flash.

The three-day conference brings top innovators to the table to discuss media and technology – but this is Southern California, after all, so they also let their hair down at the AOL after party. Check out the photos of movie moguls and top tech geeks, including FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski, Rupert and Wendi Murdoch, Arianna Huffington, Eric Hippeau, Tim Armstrong, and Jennifer Khoury, enjoying a set from Natasha Bedingfield.
