Here are a few more details about the one-day gathering we’re planning for August 7 at Harvard Law School, the day after the Wikimania conference ends. I’m speaking at Wikimania, and hope to see some of you there as well as at our event.
The purpose is to brainstorm some key aspects of citizen journalism, including principles, techniques, tools, business models and more.
The conference will be in the “unconference” format. That is, the audience will be the experts — no formal panels, but rather excellent moderators drawing out what we collectively know — and the idea is to learn from each other.
Moderators so far include (in alphabetical order):
— Andrew Lih, former Columbia and Hong Kong University new media professor, on on what would be the ideal toolset for citizen journalism, and what’s still missing from the toolset.
The gathering will take place at Harvard Law School‘s Pound Hall, beginning at 9 a.m. and finishing at 4 p.m. We’ll also have bird-of-feather dinners in Cambridge, most likely hosted by several speakers, for those who want to stick around.
The event will either be free to attend or very, very inexpensive. A signup page will be posted soon.
