clown shadow.jpgWhat do you get when you combine media, technology, classic circus acrobatics, and slapstick clowning? The Mediabistro Circus, featuring Cirque du Soleil! We kid vous not. Mediabistro’s second annual two-day conference on the covergence of digital and traditional media will feature a performance by Cirque du Soleil along with speakers such as Crowdsourcing author Jeff Howe of WIRED, New York Times graphics director Steve Duenes, and rogue adman Doug Jaeger, president of the Art Directors Club.
