Thanks to Everyone Who Participated in the Social Movements/Digital Revolutions Conference
Just a note to thank everyone who participated in the Social Movements/Digital Revolutions conference over the weekend. Myself and the other organizers were gratified to have 120 people at our Friday night panel at MIT - "A Robot Sent to Destroy Me": The New Media Invasion and the Future of News" - and 80 people at the Saturday conference events at Lesley University. We all hope that everyone had a nice time and learned a lot. We certainly did.
And now for some specific shout-outs.
First, much love to all our panel speakers and workshop presenters, and to the all the staff at MIT and Lesley - especially those of you who allowed us to merge your workshops when a good number of our attendees were stuck in Regatta traffic on Saturday morning (d'oh!).
Second, big thanks to all our co-sponsors: Massachusetts Global Action, Organizers Collaborative, TecsChange, Free Press, Lesley University, MIT Comparative Media Studies, MIT Center for Civic Media and Open Media Boston. And further thanks to the folks at Participant Media for their help on the Friday night event.
Third, thanks very much to our conference volunteers.
That's it for now. Stay tuned for videos from our main panels here at Open Media Boston over the next couple of weeks.
