As you’ll see by clicking on the link to Monday’s Citizen Journalism unconference — there are, among other things, podcasts, blog links and notes of the sessions — the event was a terrific success.
About 100 people spent a long day in conversation about some of the key areas that today’s and tomorrow’s citizen journalists will confront. We didn’t solve a lot of problems, but we gathered an impressive amount of data that will help us make progress. The audience-as-panel works, and our thanks to all who participated.
Ten cheers for the moderators — Lisa Williams, Andrew Lih, Steve Garfield, Tom Stites, Phil Malone and Ethan Zuckerman — who drew from the audience an enormous amount of information and wisdom. A huge and special thank you as well to Doc Searls, who took amazing notes.
The Berkman Center staff and volunteers took care of the details that made the day run so smoothly. Super thanks to Erica George, Colin Rhinesmith, Matt Duane, Frances Katz, Caroline Nellemann and Lokman Tsui.
