Join James Hong (co-founder, Hot or Not), Nick Denton (founder, Gawker Media), Chelsea Peretti (co-creator, BlackPeopleLoveUs, the Rejection Line), Jeff Mack (Product Manager, Alexa Internet), and host Jonah Peretti for the launch of the Contagious Media Showdown. Can this panel of experts predict which entries will take home the big prizes in the competition? Can they anticipate the tastes of the unwashed masses? We will see, as each panelist goes on record by picking his favorite sites and explaining why he thinks they will spread widely. Then we will remove the password from the official Contagious Media Server, simultaneously making all the entries open to the public. The experts can prognosticate, but only the people can crown the winners.

Drinks and music by DJ Pete Miser follow
