Restoring Trust, San Antonio Conference Update

We have closed the registration for the Wake Up Call: Can Trust and Quality Save Journalism? conference on August 9, 2005 in San Antonio. We were guessing that we would have 60 to 80 people in the room, but now it looks like we are at 105. You can see the registered list as of July 22 here.

We have a great line-up of speakers and a great program. So we should not be surprised at the response from people who want to attend. Of course, we are right in the middle of great speculation of what will become of the news media as we know it. And the discussion is playing itself out almost daily in the places like The New York Times and National Public Radio.

Our conference rooms on August 9 will be wireless and we are hoping for some blogging and podcasting. In fact, MySanAntonio.com, which is run by the San Antonio Express-News and KENS5 will be promoting the conference blogs on its website. Later the folks at the Reynolds School of Journalism at the University of Nevada, Reno will be writing a special report. So even if you got shut out of the main event, you can be in touch via the internet.

If you are already signed up, be sure to bring your laptop and start blogging or podcasting. m7music.com a local hip hop podcast will be demonstarting how to podcast--and we hope helping the folks at the conference to do some podcasting. And if I get some time, I might even try to do a little vlog. Stay tuned.
