After a day of carousing about Toronto, being nearly attacked by really fat, hungry seagulls at Nathan Phillips Square and experiencing the tender mercies of “We Will Rock You” (featuring a performer flashing her maple leaf-clad underwear at the crowd), I’ll be heading tomorrow morning to the 2007 Online News Association conference.
I can feel in my bones that the CitMedia workshop I’m attending tomorrow is going to be awesome. Gannett’s Jennifer Carroll, WashingtonPost.com’s Rob Curley, NYU’s Jay Rosen, Morris Communications’ Steve Yelvington and many more are going to be speaking. That’s more community journalism knowledge in one room than you can shake a stick at.
Web connection and time permitting, I’ll be blogging from the conference. John Havens at BlogTalk Radio will be recording and streaming live interviews from the conference.
Also, if you’ve got any suggestions for good eats or not-so-touristy things to do here in downtown Toronto, drop me a line in the comments, ay!
