Check this out. I'd like to get a similar conversation going here in Northeast Ohio. Let's move beyond the vitriolic, tired debate between MSM and new media. Who's game for similar conversation in Northeast Ohio?
Scroll down to check out the white board notes with feedback on questions such as:
Who is a journalist?
What is journalism?
What are we trying to grow?
Who are we trying to serve?
What does democracy require?
What is an act of journalism?
Who runs the operation?
What is the culture of the newsroom?
How does it make money?
What do we do now?
Here's Jarvis' take:
I say this is the day that the war ends. This isn’t journalism against bloggers anymore. It never was, really. This is journalists and bloggers together in favor of news.
It was dubbed The NORG Unconference because:
This is an unconference — no speakers, the agenda in the hands of everyone — because, (Philadelphia Daily News Editor Wendy) Warren says, “Whoever’s in the conversation is the right person to have in the conversation.”
UPDATE: Here's the NORG site.
