The Entire D6 Interview With Time Warner's Jeff Bewkes (1 of 4)

We’re posting all the interviews from the sixth D: All Things Digital conference that took place in late May.

Unfortunately, due to issues too complicated to go into, we have to post all the D6 interviews in several 15-minute parts (I know, I know).

But–as many readers have requested–they will all be available in their entirety over the next weeks in this column.

Here’s Part 1 of 4 of an interview I did with Time Warner’s CEO, Jeff Bewkes.

(I will be posting one video part of the discussion with Bewkes every day this week through Thursday.)

As you will see, Bewkes is a live wire, sassing me about the hard time I was giving him about the rough road AOL has had as a Time Warner (TWX) property.

This video of the interview opens with a very funny spoof video Bewkes brought along using Time Warner’s TMZ unit, followed by his remarks on the continued impact of the rocky merger with AOL, the purchase of the Bebo social-networking site and how to best use content online.

What’s happening is that we might, in fact, be at a time in our history where we’re being domesticated by these great big societal things, such as Facebook and the Internet. We’re being domesticated by them, because fewer and fewer and fewer of us have to be innovators to get by. And so, in the cold calculus of evolution by natural selection, at no greater time in history than ever before, copiers are probably doing better than innovators. Because innovation is extraordinarily hard.
