It may not be the most well-known conference, but WeMedia is certainly not an event to be missed for this student journalist.
This will be my second WeMedia and, as with last year’s, I am able get in for free with a guest code from the School of Communication, one of the sponsors.
Let’s look at some highlights of WeMedia 2007:
- Professionals from multiple facets of media in the same, non-keynote events (gasp!)
- An entire session by Reuters on Second Life
- Livebloggers galore
- A session moderated by The New York Times‘ futurist-in-residence that featured Craig Newmark, who some journalists would like put in a pillory for creating Craig’s List
And how many conferences use (effectively) video players, tags and widgets in their online presence? Have their own social networking site? WeMedia Community
Continuing with my recently established tradition, I plan to liveblog as many of the events I attend as possible.
Will you be there? Drop me line.
