Where else but at the National Conference for Media Reform can you hear panelists in one room discussing drone warfare in Afghanistan and in another debating the relative merits of Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman?
Those who've visited the Conference Commons might have noticed a potted fern meandering around. And this fern doesn’t just walk — no, it also talks (about Net Neutrality, among other matters) as it senses people approaching.
The Commons is, indeed, a place where anything can happen.
If you’re like me, you stayed up until the wee hours at our rocking Shake Your Media Maker Dance Party. (New definition for awesome: Hank Shocklee.) So maybe you’re feeling a little bleary-eyed this morning — but don’t even think about laying low. Grab a cup of joe, do 100 jumping jacks, shower in arctic water … do what it takes to perk yourself up for the many cool offerings we have lined up for you!
Remember how much you looked forward to your birthday when you were a kid? You’d dream about it months in advance, planning your party, thinking about the friends you’d invite, anticipating how much more grownup you’d feel when you could announce yourself as four or seven or — the Rolls Royce of birthdays — 10.
Maybe you’re feeling a little sad right now. A little verklempt. A little forlorn. You really, really wanted to go to the National Conference for Media Reform but for one reason or another you just couldn’t make it.
Well, put those tear-stained handkerchiefs away, because we’ve prepared live coverage just for people like you.
As a communications student, I've learned a lot about media consolidation. But none of my classes have explored ways to fight back.
That’s why I can’t wait to go to the National Conference for Media Reform, which will be held in Denver on April 5–7. The conference is a place for people with curious minds to tackle big issues — and actually develop some solutions.
