The future of news

Posted at 4:42 PM on September 15, 2006 by Bill Wareham

Hey, I don't know what the future of news is. I do, however, think about it quite a bit. Tomorrow I'll be part of a group of folks thinking out loud about it at an event at Hamline University put on by the Twin Cities Media Alliance.

It's a forum entitled Citizens and the Future of News. Not a snappy title, I know, but I'm confident it'll be an interesting discussion. Daily Show creator Lizz Winstead and media critic Mark Crispin Miller are the marquee names. I'm on the "mainstream" media panel; there's another panel featuring "emerging" media folks. All the details on this free event are here.

And if you don't know anything about the Twin Cities Media Alliance you should check out its main project The Twin Cities Daily Planet, a pretty cool aggregator of lots of local news from neighborhood and community media.
