campallen.JPGHollywood is jetting to the annual Allen & Co investment conference in Sun Valley starting today. I’ve just been emailed the in-room schedule by a participant, and this year showbiz is back in favor because of an “Entertainment Panel” consisting of Barry Diller, Peter Chernin, Jeff Katzenberg, and Bobby Kotick (the CEO/president of Activision Blizzard for those who are joystick challenged). Ken Auletta, the CEO pornmeister, moderates. No Friday night dildos. No sandwich boards for out-of-work moguls. Gawd, Camp Allen has become such a showbiz snorefest. Just look at the sked:

Also Wednesday:
— “Women In Technology” – Tom Brokaw moderating, with panelists: Ursula Burns and Anne Mulcahy from Xerox and Sheryl Sandberg for Facebook.
