HEADED TO AUSTIN, TX AGAIN

I'm getting ready for the International Symposium on Online Journalism at U-Texas. Through a combination of dumb luck, perseverance, and outright deception, I find myself on the following panel:

Participatory Journalism in Action: The Cases of ohmynews.com, wikinews.org, and the blogs
Chair and discussant: Lorraine Branham, director, School of Journalism, UT Austin

  • Jean Min, deputy chief, international division of Ohmynews.com
  • J.D. Lasica, journalist and blogger
  • Chuck Olsen, blogger and director of Blogumentary
  • Wayne Saewyc, editor and admin, WikiNews.org

    The Symposium should be very educational, and I can't wait to meet some of these smart people. But I'm most looking forward to the "Video presentation on Austin City Limits TV show." I'll pretend I'm watching Guided By Voices drunk onstage, and probably scream inappropriately.

    UPDATE:
    My panel went very well. I got several compliments afterward, anyway. I had tough acts to follow: Dan Gillmor (the master) and OhMyNews.com (new journalism rock stars). But my presentation, which I'm going to call "The Long Tail of the Media" was a nice compliment to to their message without duplicating it. It was also a nice lead-in for JD Lasica who played some rockin' indie media culled from Ourmedia.org.
