Have you registered yet to particpate in "Newstools," on Sat., March 21 at
the BU College of Communciation?
As a New England News Forum supporter, we invite you to bring a guest for just $5. Do you know a citizen, a public official or a non-profit or civic-group manager or volunteer who has an innovative way to reach out to constituencies with the web? Do they have a story about how shrinking news coverage is affecting the civic life of a community? Bring them.
We want to collect ideas and stories from throughout New England -- then settle on some ideas for action.
And we've got an all-start group of collaborators to get us started, including Steve Clift . . . the nation's expert on connecting people with government . . . Jane Stevens . . . who is starting the "RJI Collaboratory," a place to help citizen-powered local online news communities to grow fast and get help to do so . . . and Joe Bergantino . . . who is running New England's first non-profit investigative journalism outfit.
So, if yo're ready to join us, go to http://www.newsout.org . . . find the link to registration . . . and let us know you're coming. After you register, you or your guest can register using the "Guest" tab for only an additional five dollars.
If you have an idea for a breakout session, write us at firstname.lastname@example.org. And thanks to our co-sponsors, including The Boston Foundation, the University of Massachusetts, the BU College of Communication and
