I’ll be speaking on Sunday morning on the topic: “Web Tactics: Blogging and New Technologies.” I’ll be joined by Trevor Cook, a director of PR firm Jackson Wells Morris. Expect heated debate over the impact of blogging on journalism and perhaps the odd joke about Rupert Murdoch’s recent realisation that money could be made on the internet.
This weekend signals the beginning of the Eighth Annual Freelance Convention for Journalists, Artists and Photographers organised by the Media, Entertainment and Arts Alliance. If you’re in Sydney, or feel the need to get here, it’ll be well worth a visit. Speakers include ABC’s Kerry O’Brien and Jonathan Harley and Garry Linnell, editor-in-chief of The Bulletin. They’ll be talking on all media matters, including pitching stories to editors, interview techniques and new media.
