Media Monday Edmonton: Update #19

Here is my latest update on local media stuff:

  • I thought Karen (pictured below with Clay Shirky in the background) did a fantastic job at Pecha Kucha Night 11, talking about what journalism needs now. She told journalists to “french kiss change” and to “hump change’s leg”. Here’s my recap, in case you missed it.

  • Tonight was the opening reception for the 2011 GoMedia Canada Conference at the Art Gallery of Alberta. This is the first time Edmonton has hosted the event. More than 120 travel journalists are attending and will get the next few days to experience Edmonton and the capital region.
