Heads up on Tuesday, April 6, 2004, I’ll be moderating a panel entitled Alternative Media: Attack of the Blogs. If you happen to be in Boulder on that day, please drop in! (See end of this item for location and time.)
I’m pretty jazzed about this opportunity even though, as moderator, I’m only supposed to let the panelists talk and manage the Q&A, not present my own perspective or answer questions. That’s OK, since I’ll definitely be blogging about this in CONTENTIOUS after it’s over.
This panel is part of the annual Conference on World Affairs, a unique weeklong event at the University of Colorado, Boulder, that’s free and open to the public (April 5-9, 2004). I love this event it’s my yearly local brain-food festival. Check out the schedule the list of topics and speakers is extensive, diverse, and provocative.
More details about my panel…
My panelists will be:
- Andy Ihnatko, tech columnist for the Chicago Sun-Times and MacWorld. He also writes the Yellowtext blog. (His latest Sun-Times column: Some homeland defense for your PC and it’s all free)
- Declan McCullagh, chief political correspondent for CNET News.com. He keeps a tech news-oriented blog at The Industry Standard. (His latest CNET article: Judge nixes part of Amazon, Borders suit)
- Kim Spencer, president and co-founder of LinkTV, a national satellite network that offers “a global perspective on news, current events and culture, presenting viewpoints seldom covered in the US media.”
LOCATION AND TIME: 11am-12:30 (mountain time), Univ. Memorial Center, room 382-386. (Campus map)
…I don’t know yet exactly what territory we’ll be covering in this panel, but I’m sure it will be interesting. I’ll post a synopsis to CONTENTIOUS Tuesday evening or Wednesday morning.
