The return of Digital Journalism Social Hour: Nov. 16!

11/05/2010

After a long hiatus, Digital Journalism Social Hour — the monthly meet-up where we discuss topics and projects that impact journalists in Oregon and Southwest Washington — is back, but this time with a new format.

Previously, each meet-up featured individual people who were breaking new ground. Now we’ll be focusing on a different set of innovators: ourselves. Instead of a speaker, we’ll dissect and analyze a single topic. Think of it as an extension of a Barcamp or unconference or any other recent local event where we’ve said to each other, “We should do this more often!”

This month’s topic is “Collaboration.” What does that mean to us as individual journalists, as competitors and as members of a larger community?

A huge thanks to Matthew Spellman for getting us space at NedSpace to meet up in. And in true collaborative style, we ask you to bring your own favorite beverage, along with some to share if the spirit moves you!

Visit Upcoming and let us know if you’re coming.

Date: Nov. 16, 2010
Time:
7:30 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Location:
NedSpace Old Town
117 NW Fifth Ave. – between Couch and Davis

    I’ll be the first to jump in and say hip, hip, hooray…!

    And I’ll be bringing a bottle of fine whiskey along for the ride as well.

    Bringing beverages as well and want to share the wealth with others? Let me know at betsy@redoingmedia.com; I’ll manage the process if needed…

    Yay! Thanks for organizing it – and on a night I don’t have class! Looking forward to it.
