Dan Gilmor to Speak at UNC on Feb. 14

I’d heard a rumor not long ago that Dan Gillmor, the grassroots journalism champion, was coming to Chapel Hill. Paul Jones just confirmed it by posting the details on his blog. Mr. Gillmor will speak at 3:30 PM Monday, February 14 at the Freedom Forum Conference Center on the Third Floor of Carroll Hall at the University of North Carolina. [map & more] According to the Triangle Bloggers Conference wiki he’s a moderator for Session 2: Using Blogs to Create Community. I hope that it means he’ll be there. We’re all very excited to see and hear what he brings to the conversation. My goal is to interview him for a podcast. 🙂
