If any of you are in New England this week, I’ll be in Amherst at the University of Massachusetts, attending the four-day Media Giraffe (as in ‘get your neck above the clutter and see what’s going on’) conference about the future of journalism. On Wednesday evening, I’ll be moderating a New England ‘town hall-style’ discussion about “Will journalism continue to be relevant? How? In what form?” and the following evening about “Can Ownership Make a A Difference?”
I’m looking forward this conference because it has perhaps the widest range of attendees and participants of any media conference I’ve ever seen; people from print, broadcast, new-media, blogging, and academia, plus an agenda not encumbered by any one of those sectors.
