Austin Community Media Forum

This weekend, help build the future of community media in Austin. On Saturday (June 24) there will be a free day-long workshop. The Austin Community Media Forum seeks to include local experts and stakeholders who will identify challenges and opportunities for local media. The primary focus is public access television, but surely will touch on issues relating to emerging technologies.

Attendance is free, but you must register in advance.

I'm on the steering committee for this event. We've adopted a format that could be really interesting. The morning is plotted out with conventional panels including noted experts. The afternoon session, however, is completely open, and will be determined by the interests of those attending. I'll be leading the session where we plot out our plan for the afternoon. So come prepared not only to listen and learn, but also to engage and participate.
