Trying to get into the habit of giving readers a heads-up when we expect to be at a public event, I waned to let you know TNS staffer Megan Tady and I will be attending and tabling at the Democracy & Independence Conference, hosted in Amherst, Mass., by the Media Giraffe Project, this Friday and Saturday.
We're excited to be poking our heads up and interacting with other journalists / bloggers / publishers / readers and/or media activists! If you are attending the conference, be sure to stop by our table (can't miss it) -- you won't be forgiven if you do not come by and introduce yourself. We absolutely love meeting TNS readers.
We're also participating on at least one panel, "Citizen Media: The Daily Grind." (Yeah, we realize we're not a citizen-journalism project, and so do they -- but they seem to really think we have something to contribute, so we're always happy to oblige.)
Also, it looks like perennial TNS reader Ben MelanÃ§on will be liveblogging the conference over at the Narcosphere blog. There's a good chance you'll find him at our table, too.
Hope to see some of you in Amherst!
