NYC event: All-star discussion on new media

Join Columbia Journalism School and the Hearst Foundation next week for their annual look at the changing profession of journalism , with an emphasis on new media and online journalism.

"Changing Media Landscape, 2008" is from 6:30-9:30 p.m. on November 11 at Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism in New York.

The event will feature a discussion led by six all-star media influencers: Sewell Chan, blogger/bureau chief of the New York Times "City Room" blog; David Cohn, founder of Spot.us, a new crowdfunding investigative journalism project; Adriano Farano, executive editor of CafeBabel.com - the first multilingual European current affairs online magazine; Erica Smith, news designer for St. Louis Post-Dispatch and "Paper Cuts" blogger; and Jacob Weisberg, chairman and editor-in-chief of Slate Group.

"This is a different kind of panel," e-mails Sree Sreenivasa, Dean of Student Affairs and new media professor at Columbia's journalism school, "with a real conversation among the participants and audience - with no PowerPoint in sight."

The event is free and RSVP is not required. A live and archived webcast of the event will be available at http://mogulus.com/columbiajournalism
