We're pleased to announced our first NENF event in New Hampshire -- and the topic couldn't be more timely.
The Internet is an emerging mass medium -- a press without a press. How are candidate websites, blogs, mashups, meetups, social networks, citizen reporters and online fundraising affecting political dialog in the New Hampshire primary?
To find out, the New England News Forum, Southern New Hampshire University, the Marlin Fitzwater Center at Franklin Pierce University, the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation, the Concord Monitor Online, the Berkman Center for Internet & Society at Harvard Law School, and other supporters are convening a Dec. 6 public forum entitled: "The Unpress: New Gatekeepers of the New Hampshire Primary."
The gathering is scheduled for 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at Southern New Hampshire University's Walker Auditorium, in Robert Frost Hall, on Thurs., Dec. 6. We're inviting bloggers, journalists, campaign operatives and engaged citizens to be part of a town meeting-style discussion of the topic. Please plan to attend! There's an optional pre-event hors d'oeuvres-and-networking session from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. for a $10 suggested donation
