Media140 Sydney 2009 – Future of Journalism in the Social Media Age

I follow goings on in the Australian, European and American media very carefully and consider what I do for a living as a professional blogger to be at the bleeding edge of change in the media.

Media 140 Sydney

So I immediately volunteered to be a blogger/photographer when I found out that the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) was hosting a collaborative international event called Media140 Sydney on Nov 5 & 6th bringing together leading journalists, broadcasters and media academics about the future of journalism in the era of real time news and citizen journalism.

In the spirit of new media and the real-time dissemination of news via the Internet I am embedding live (experimental) video coverage, photos I take at the event here via Flickr and using a tool called Coveritlive to track+archive the conversations on Twitter about the Media140 Sydney event.
