Thank you to all who braved the dark New England night, the deep winter chill, and a malfunctioning T to gather at the station. It was a record turnout that had us within a gnat’s breath of trampling the fire code.
This is what happens when someone with 35,000 followers retweets you.
Our uber-Tweeter was of course Chris Brogan, one of four folks that warrant special thanks. Chris agreed to my eleventh-hour request to facilitate one of the evening’s conversations. Not only that, he came up with the topic. Voice pitched to the perfect level of calm, chairs corralled into a circle, and Voila! One lively conversation on citizen journalism was launched. Watch this one closely, people. He is a master.
Then there is National Public Radio’s Keith Hopper—gears in perpetual motion, new media insights, theories, and stratagems churning out at a dizzying speed—who helmed a lively conversation on hyperlocal journalism, an extension of one begun on his superb blog. Not only that, Keith had the foresight to record the session and post it on Utterli.
Finally, thank you to Steve Brown, grace personified, for allowing us to watch him work his craft in real time. And of course the redoubtable Clint Cavanaugh, tour guide extraordinaire.
Our Tweet-ups have become lively colloquies on all things media. See what you miss by not going?
And speaking of which, if you are a food blogger or just a major-league foodie, please join us at the station on the 26th.
