Sorry for the late notice, but tonight is the first MIT Communications Forum of the semester. It’s on newspapers moving online and will feature David Carr from the New York Times and Dan Kennedy from Northeastern. I’ve been attending these events for several years and can tell you they are great for forcing one to think of communication issues in new and different ways.
If you can’t make this one (and I totally understand if you can’t) try to make some of the others. There’s one on the humanities in the digital age, another on civic media and the law and finally one on communications in a slow-moving crisis.
The crowd is mostly from the MIT community so discussions tend to be abstract, academic and awesome.
