POSTPONED? This event may have been postponed. Murray’s tentacles reach very far.
The future of Journalism Conference sponsored by Media, Entertainment & Arts Alliance/Walkley Foundation link is not yet updated, but as far as the (yet to be finalised) lineup is at the moment I will be alongside Poll Bludger’s William Bowe and Keryn McKinnon – Foi blogger, West Australian, talking about
Bloggers: Amateur netizens or dedicated professionals? Is the future in the hands of citizen journalists?
I will be concentrating on how Paul Murray ex editor of The West Australian is defining citizen journalism/new media in several ways, cutting and pasting vast swathes from other sources to pad out content. How new media is that? Sometimes quoting his own pieces! I may even address the actual topic. Who knows? Watch this space for more details on how to register. If you come along, be sure to buy me a drink.
She-Ra Lisa Scaffidi will be talking about the future of Perth, which could be quite interesting for The Worst of Perth readers, particularly in regards to public art and architecture. I will try and ask her about the proposed sculpture park and the plans for Forrest Place. You can also come along, but it will cost you about $80, including brekkie.
Interesting that the venue for She-Ra, and Paul Murray Citizen Journalist is at the Hyatt, already featured as one of Perth’s worst buildings.
