Made for each other…
Next Thursday evening, Oct. 11, we’re hosting Jimmy Wales of Wikipedia and Oh Yeon Ho of OhmyNews at the University of California, Berkeley. The format will be a conversation with these founders of two of the world’s most important citizen-media organizations. Joining us will be my co-instructor in a journalism course at UC Berkeley, Bill Gannon, head of Web operations for LucasFilm and former editorial director of Yahoo.
The conversation takes place at Sibley Auditorium in the Bechtel Engineering Center.

Not sure when it’ll be back up…
