Two journalism workshops in California in September 2006...


"Figuring Out Blogs, Wikis, Podcasts, YouTube & Whatever's Next"
A public workshop about the best blogs FOR and BY journalists and how you can join the blogging revolution as a consumer and/or creator of blogs - and how to make sense of all the other new technologies changing our business.

Led by Prof. Sree Sreenivasan, Dean of Students, Columbia Journalism School, visiting from NYC

There is much confusion about blogs, bloggers and blogging. Is this the end of journalism as we know it? Or is it just another small step in the evolution of media? What about photoblogging, videoblogging, podcasting RSS and whatever's next?
You will get answers to these and other questions at this workshop. All levels of blog
experience welcome - blog skeptics to blog fanatics. You will go home with plenty of useful ideas and a printed handout you will use often. This fun, informative, fast-paced workshop grew out of a Web research workshop that has been taught to more than 10,000 journalists and other professionals in eight countries.

NOTE:
No charge, but limited seating - you must RSVP.
