An open reboot on Saturday

Tuesday, September 29, 2009 by Dave Winer.

A picture named typewriter.jpgWe're going to combine this week's Rebooting the News with next week's and do it Saturday afternoon live in San Francisco. Jay will be in town for the Online News Association meeting, and of course I live a BART ride away in Berkeley, so we'll meet at 4:30PM and do a 75-minute Rebooting the News special, and you're invited!  Permalink to this paragraph

We're looking for a place that's very near to the Hilton. If you have a conference room nearby, within say a 5 minute walk, would you like to host this small meetup? We'd find an appropriate way to thank you in the podcast. A picture named sidesmiley.gif Permalink to this paragraph

Also, please post a comment below if you'd like to come. Can't guarantee how much room we'll have, we may end up doing it at a Starbuck's!  Permalink to this paragraph
