Hey Hollywood: What questions do you have for Silicon Valley? Here is your chance to stump the experts at TheGrill 2012, which takes place next Monday and Tuesday in Los Angeles.

Questions like:

  • What's up with all the IPOs?
  • Is mobile going to bring down social media?
  • Has social media hit its peak?
  • What about monetization?

Submit your questions to thegrill@thewrap.com with the subject line "Face Off questions." Kara Swisher, Co-Executive Editor of AllThingsD, and I will field the best ones during our Face Off: Five Questions for Silicon Valley vs. Hollywood. You can also lob your toughest questions facing Hollywood — we'll take those on too.

We're super excited about this year's Grill, our third-annual Media Leadership conference, the yearly conversation among Hollywood's leaders about the future of the entertainment economy and the challenges posed by technology.
