"Learning To Talk": Ask A Question
Are blogs like this one a useful way of newspapers and media companies reaching out to readers, viewers and users and becoming more accountable?
Or are they yet more meaningless electronic chit-chat, or worse still corporate spin?
Those are hopefully some of the questions we will be debating at a panel discussion called:
"Learning To Talk: Blogs, Media and Accountabilty"
Dates, venue etc: 5.30 on the Monday 14th July in the Council Chamber in Broadcasting House, Portand Place, London.
Asking the questions (breaking technology stories permitting) will be Rory Cellan Jones (Technology Correspondent, BBC News).
This is a public event but by invitation only. So if you want to come make a request on the Facebook event page, indicate your interest on the Upcoming page or leave a comment and I'll get in touch with you.
If you'd like to ask the panel a question please do leave a comment on this post.
To kick things off I thought this column by Siobhain raised an interesting question which was relevant to blog. Siobhain says she "struggles with" the practice of comment columns by politicians in newspapers sometimes being ghost written.
What about blog posts? Are there any circumstances when a blog post can be ghost written?
If have any other questions for the panel please do leave a comment.
