I’m giving a talk next week at Harvard Law School entitled: “Engaging with the News, Part I: The Daily Me and We,” part of a series of talks this winter and spring.
When: Tuesday, March 14, 7 pm
Where: Pound 102, Harvard Law School
Here’s the blurb the Berkman Center for Internet & Society is sending out and posting.
In a world of democratized media, we don’t have to settle anymore for the newspaper that a carrier drops in the driveway or the 5 o’clock news broadcast. Even the traditional media are offering new choices, including podcasts and outbound links, but this is only a starting point. We can, and should, assemble our own news reports from the vast data streams. We can use tools to help navigate our way through the masses of information, but the human component remains crucial. Recommendation systems and other emergent notions can help answer the question of who and what is trustworthy in a world where anyone can publish.
Dan Gillmor is the founder & director of CitizenMedia.org, author of “We the Media,” and a Berkman Center fellow. This event is the second in a series of public talks on citizens media. Drinks & desserts will be provided!

Hope to see some of you.
