Beyond Broadcast conference this weekend!

Beyond Broadcast conference @ Harvard Law SchoolI hate it when interesting events like these slip by me; I didn’t even hear about this until just now from a fellow blogger!

The Berkman Center for Internet & Society at Harvard Law School is opening for Beyond Broadcast on May 12th to 13th (this weekend!).

This conference will basically explore the thesis that traditional public media — public broadcasting, cable access television, etc — face a unique opportunity to embrace new participatory web-based media models — podcasting, video blogs, social software, etc — and create a stronger and more vital public service.

The goal of this convening is to create an opportunity for interaction between active participants in traditional public media and new participatory web-based efforts; to showcase and discuss the latest projects and models emerging faster than anyone can keep track of; and to cultivate a shared understanding of the potential and meaning of a renewed public media role.

I really need a strong network of researchers interested in the same socio-tech issues as me, are there any groups/mailing list I should know of?
