D: All Things Digital @ CES: Live-Streaming Interviews With Hastings (Netflix), Rubinstein (Palm) and Rubin (Google)


D: All Things Digital is packing up our wagon and taking it on the road right after the holiday, with a special “mini” session at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

Organized by The Wall Street Journal, the interview event will take place Friday, Jan. 8, 2010, at the Venetian hotel. While space is limited at the invitation-only event, we will be live-streaming the entire thing on the site, starting 3:30 pm PT and ending at 5:30 pm (and it will be available later for watching anytime).

On the ATD red-hot seats:

First up: Reed Hastings, CEO, president and chairman of Netflix (NFLX), to be queried by MediaMemo’s Peter Kafka about where digital media and entertainment are headed and how.

Next: Jon Rubinstein, Chairman and CEO of Palm (PALM), talking to BoomTown about what’s going on one year after the company unveiled its Pre smartphone and webOS at last year’s CES.

Last, but not least: Google (GOOG) VP of Engineering Andy Rubin will be interviewed by Walt Mossberg about the search giant’s Android efforts, the new Nexus One mobile phone and more.

Obviously, there is a lot to talk about with these three, so tune in to our front page on Jan. 8 for the live video.

It’s especially hopeless for those whose work is easily digitized and accessed free of charge.
