A Moment of Shameless Self-Promotion

For the next couple of days, I'll be at the annual conference of the National Institute for Money in State Politics - an event I mentioned in a post a couple of days ago. On Friday, I'll be part of a panel entitled "Information and News in a New Age" from 3:15pm-4:45pm Mountain Time. You can tune in to the panel (and the whole conference) by clicking this link.

We've got a really good group - not just old newspaper creatures like me. The other panelists are:

- Laurel Ruma, Editor, O'Reilly Media
- John Thornton, General Partner, Austin Ventures
- Robert McClure, Vice President, Investigate West

Some topics I hope we'll cover:

- Watchdog/enterprise/investigative journalism as a public good
- Hybrids and the blurry, blurry line between nonprofit and for-profit
- Nonprofit models that might work; models not so much
- Haves and have-nots, and the quest for sustainability
- New research, metrics and other steps toward scaling up
