Center for Citizen Media “Unconference”
August 7, 2006
9 am – 4pm
Harvard Law School, Pound Hall
On August 7, Berkman Center fellow and Center for Citizen Media director Dan Gillmor will host a day of discussion on citizen media at Harvard Law School. 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, where the audience are the experts and there are no formal panels, but rather skilled moderators and session leaders drawing out what we collectively know so we can learn from each other.
Moderators include Steve Garfield, Andrew Lih, Phil Malone, Tom Stites, Lisa Williams, and Ethan Zuckerman.
The gathering will take place at Harvard Law School’s Pound Hall, beginning at 9 a.m. and finishing at around 4 p.m. We’ll also plan to have birds-of-a-feather dinners in Cambridge, most likely hosted by several speakers, for those who want to stick around. The cost of the day is $20 at the door, to cover food costs (we’ll provide morning coffee, lunch and an afternoon snack). Registration is limited to 100 people, so sign up today!
