I (Chris) will be participating in two panels this week. The first is Sunday afternoon at NFAIS 2008 Conference in Philadelphia.
I’ll be following Dr. David Weinberger - from Harvard’s Berkman Center and author of Small Things Loosely Joined and Everything Is Miscellaneous - and Lee Rainie - founding director of The Pew Internet and American Life Project.
Tough acts to follow, but I will give it my best shot with “Emerging Culture of the New Information Order: The Awesome Power of Participation and How to Harness It.”
Then on Thursday, it’s the fourth annual We Media Miami conference. Over the years we’ve had a passionate and eclectic group of participants from Al Gore and Esther Dyson to Chuck D. and Craig Newmark.
(Note: We’ve just passed the 225,000 PDF download of We Media with the spanish version far outpacing the english.)
I’ll spend my time trying to convince people of an idea I’ve been acting on: We can tell any traditional story on the web but are there are certain stories than can only be told on the web?
Look here this week for any slides, thoughts and random pictures.
If you are at either of these engagements, please say “hi.”
