VCAM Blogging Panel

Posted By on Thu, Oct 26, 2006 at 12:55 PM

Busy today. Not much blogging. Here's something, tho, from Bill Simmon of Candleblog:

Blogging and the Democratization of Media: From the Printing Press to Wikipedia and Beyond

Vermont Community Access Media (VCAM) will host a panel discussion about blogging, podcasting, citizen journalism and the future of online self-expression on Thursday evening November 2nd at 6:30pm. Panelists include political writer and nationally renowned blogger Steve Benen (thecarpetbaggerreport.com), Seven Days staff writer and blogger Cathy Resmer (7d.blogs.com/802online), and Front Porch Forum founder Michael Wood-Lewis (frontporchforum.com). The panel will be moderated by filmmaker and blogger, Bill Simmon (candleboy.com/candleblog).

The panel is free and open to the public and will include an extensive Q&A/brainstorming period.

What is blogging? Is it just a fad? Is it a threat to “traditional” journalism? The panelists will discuss these questions as well as the many different ways in which citizens are participating in an enormous online meta-discourse, using blogs, podcasts, video blogs, online forums, tagging, YouTube, Flickr, and countless other web-based tools.

VCAM is a non-profit community media and technology center offering free public access to and hands-on training with state-of-the-art video production and post-production facilities. VCAM operates channel 15 on Adelphia/Comcast Cable in the greater Burlington area.

The VCAM studio is located in the south end of Burlington at 208 Flynn Ave., in the back, facing the RR tracks. For more information or directions, call 651-9692 or visit vermontcam.org.
