Media140

April 24, 2009

140I am delighted to be attending the inaugural Media 140 event (www.media140.com) on May 20th, Southbank, London.

Official Hashtag: #media140

“Discuss and debate the future of realtime news”

The event will bring together journalists, bloggers, social media advocates and publishers to share and discuss the effects and impact of twitter and other social media tools on mainstream media.

It will feature a mixture of case studies and quickfire panel discussions from an eclectic mix of journalists, bloggers, commentators and technologists from The Times, Guardian, Reuters, BBC, Sky News, Journalism.co.uk and Frontline Club.

Some of the topics for the event will include:
- is microblogging and twitter really a news ‘game changer’?
- how will microblogging change traditional local news sourcing and distribution?
- tools of the trade, what works and what doesn’t?
- case studies on microblogging: Afganistan, US Elections, Olympics and Iraq

If this looks like it might float your boat there are still tickets available and the great news is all proceeds are going to the very excellent Mencap.

I will be blogging live from the event, further details to follow.
