National Conference on Media Reform


I’m at my second of the mega conferences that are put on by the folks at Free Press – the National Conference on Media Reform. It’s an amazing gathering (this year in tornado beset Minneapolis) of experts, average citizens and advocates. It’s actually hard to pick which panel to attend — I’ve never seen so few people hanging out in the halls, which is certainly a tribute to the program itself. This year there are for more panels and experts on what’s happening online – sessions on social networking, citizen journalism, legislation 2.0. You can watch many of the sessions live.
