Jeff Jarvis’ Networked Journalism Summit

Sunday, October 7th, 2007

We like to think that what we’re doing here is as much a journalism project, an open and honest look into the state of the American voting system, as it is a push for a national dialogue about election reform.

To that effect, Barnett and I are working furiously to get into the Networked Journalism Summit this week at the City Univeristy of New York. The summit is organized by Jeff Jarvis, CUNY professor and editor of both the Buzzmachine and PrezVid blogs. We’ve been trying to get into the summit since late September. We’re told it’s overbooked, but we happen to be in New York this week and will do everything we can, up until the last minute, to get in and learn about/share best practices with other like-minded folks. It promises to be a great event, and if you take a look at the attendees, many friends of Why Tuesday? will be there.
