Reboot the News at ONA09

Thursday, October 01, 2009 by Dave Winer.

A picture named sawyer.gifJay and I decided we wanted to do a live podcast at ONA09 so much we rented our own room. And it's open to the public, even if you're not going to ONA09.  Permalink to this paragraph

Here's the deal. Come to the SF Hilton at 4PM on Saturday and look for "Rebooting The News" on the TV screen in the lobby. Or you can follow me or Jay on Twitter, we'll certainly advertise our location. Be sure to be there before 4:10PM. We'll all sit around a conference room table and reboot the news. Permalink to this paragraph

No punditry, or savvy church-goers, just talk about how the news will work after the new system is fully rebooted.  Permalink to this paragraph
