We Media: The Impact of Participatory Media on Election 2004, webcast will take place on Tuesday, October 5, 2:00-3:00 ET. The Media Center at the American Press Institute is sponsoring the event.
Here’s an excerpt from the press release:
Jehmu Greene, president of Rock the Vote Foundation, and Stephen Bromberg, executive editor of FOXNews.com, will join an online panel discussion about the effects of interactive media on political dialog and the 2004 national elections in the United States....
Jason McCabe Calacanis, chairman and co-founder of the Weblogs, Inc. Network and a frequent Media Center partner, will host the webcast, the first public online event by The Media Center. Other members of the panel will include Dan Froomkin, columnist for WashingtonPost.com; Retha Hill, vice president of content development for BET.com; and Markos Moulitsas, founder and blogger of The Daily Kos.

In an email we received from The Media Center today:
“The webcast will address such questions as:
• How have user attitudes and behaviors combined with technology to create new avenues for sharing information, and to what end?
• Has the political dialog been transformed, and if so, how?”
Should be interesting to see if the panel takes issue with recent articles such as this one, Impact of blogs seen as slight by Kevin Canfield, The Journal News.
