Podcast: Benjamin Grubbs, Turner Entertainment

Thanks to the able (and patient) ears of Henry Oh, Co-Founder of Socialutions and the Hong Kong Start-up Association, we can now bring you the upgraded audio recording of my interview with Benjamin Grubbs, Regional Head of Interactive Media for Turner Entertainment Networks Asia, owners of Cartoon Network Asia.

Benjamin refutes the rumour that ecommerce is not booming in Asia and gives us insight on Turner's ventures into online gaming (Ben 10, Tom & Jerry and other cartoon characters), new forms of interactive education (Mathletics), user-generated cartoons (ToonCreator), virtual merchandise and creative ways for content owners to work with advertisers online.

Recorded at Web Wednesday Hong Kong V26.0 at Volar in Lan Kwai Fong on Thursday 2nd July, 2009.
