Jeff Jarvis (CUNY & BuzzMachine) moderated an exciting panel this past Friday night on “Citizen Journalism and Politics”. It’s one of the best panels I’ve attended in a while. Jeff kept the conversation flowing and panelists Arianna Huffington (Huffington Post and Off The Bus), Lisa Tozzi (NYTimes.com Caucus Blog), Micah Sifry (Editor, TechPresident.com and Dave Sifry of Technorati’s older brother), and Jay Rosen ( NYU Professor & Off The Bus Co-Founder) provided non-stop insight to a packed house at NYU’s Courant Institute.
For those of you who couldn’t make the event, several folks were streaming live from the audience. You can view the groundreport.com feed powered by mogulus (fyi, i think this link only shows the last episode / stream, so beware this link may no longer work in the future) and Michele Oshen was streaming live via her cell phone using qik: http://qik.com/michelle. ABC’s 20/20 was also recording for a piece they are doing on Arianna. I was really impressed with QIK, and will write up an article on that later this weekend – stay tuned.
The event was organized by the NY Citizen Journalism meetup. If you are in the New York tri-state area, and have an interest in CJ, you should definitely signup and get notified of future events.
