How the bubble consumed the internet, a timeline of the collapse, key lessons, and the promising road ahead for great journalism.

In this session Mario Vasilescu will:

> Explain how the modern internet was driven by clicks in a speculative, deceiving fashion which closely parallels classic "bubbles", such as the US real estate bubble and collapse.

> Show shocking and thought-provoking data about the clicks-based system, and various data points that show how it is collapsing, in parallel with both the fall and early resurgence of support for quality journalism.

> Explain key lessons that are essential to succeeding on the road ahead (and not making the same mistakes again), such as The Law of Shitty Clickthroughs; being careful about blindly glorifying engagement metrics; the key ingredient behind Quartz' industry-leading Daily Brief; and the cautionary tale behind Google's early days.
