Collaborating in Person to Support the Virtual
Collaboration has been growing in journalism (and media in general), and I'll be attending two collaboration events in the Bay Area. One, Collab/Space, is part of the launch of Collaboration Central on our client PBS MediaShift, and is happening at U.C. Berkeley's Bowman Center. (The hashtag: #collabspace ?) Luminaries such as investigative journalist and Berkeley educator Lowell Bergman, U of Arizona's Dan Gillmor and MediaShift's Mark Glaser will also be there.
The other event, TechRaking (#techraking) is at Google's headquarters on Thursday, in Mountain View, CA. It's being run in part by Spot.us founder David Cohn and will apparently focus more on the technology that has facilitated so much of the collaborative work that is possible today.
