Wow… I’ve been given a fellowship to attend the Mobile Media Conference, Media Opportunities and Strategies for the Mobile, Broadband Generation on April 26 – April 29, 2005 in Los Angeles. I will be acting as a program reporter. This fellowship covers all of my travel, lodging, and event registration expenses. Good thing… ’cause I’m a broke VISTA. 🙂
Here is a bit of info about the event from mediacenter.org:
“The Media Center 2005 Mobile Media conference will explore a range of topics examining all aspects of wireless adoption: how to do it, what the benefits will be and how it affects the end user. This is a hands-on, interactive event that will include one-on-one interviews, workshops, issue-driven discussion and focused, high-impact case studies â€“ all with intense attendee participation. ”
This even is sponsored by The Media Center at the American Press Institute. They have a cool blog called MORPH that I’ve been reading for quite awhile. Lots of cool grassroots journalism and new media stuff there.
GET READY! There’s going to be some interesting live blogging and podcasts coming at ya from sunny LA. Let’s hope it doesn’t rain!
