Because I want to go 3-for-3 on SXSW and weblog panel participation, I've organized a session entitled, Peer-to-Peer Journalism: Weblogs and Collaborative Media. The star-studded panel includes: Doc Searls, Rusty Foster, and Cameron Marlow. The panel description doesn't seem to be online, so this is what we'll be talking about:
"As the events of Sept. 11 demonstrated, weblogs and community sites such as Slashdot have the potential to change how news is reported--from who writes it and reads it to defining what is news-worthy. But this democratization of media also carries serious responsibility as tenets of traditional journalism can be overlooked in the rush to share a story. This panel will examine the way media and news are created and distributed in the self-published world, and we'll discuss what happens when the readers are also the writers."
I know this is a hot topic these days, so if there's something you'd like to see addressed, feel free to leave some comments. And of course we'll be looking for lots of audience participation in the session on Tuesday March 12 at 12:30 PM.
