I’m very excited and flattered to be presenting a talk (for the first time) at Seattle University’s Future of News conference, taking place Oct. 10. The invite was extended to me by Cynthia Mitchell, one of my former professors at Central Washington University, who also worked tirelessly to get me hired after college and I really appreciate the opportunity.
My presentation is officially titled “Cool Tools”— I’ll be talking about some of the Web tools I use in my day-to-day. I plan on keeping it really 101, but I also plan on fielding as many on-the-spot questions as possible and I’m not above on-the-spot crowdsourcing if I run into something I don’t know.
The cost of the conference is $50 if you’ve got a job, $15 if you’re in college or unemployed (Tickets).
I know $50 is a little steep for some, but I’ll be Tweeting from the conference (maybe blogging a bit, too) and I’ll post my presentation notes and a quick wrap on this site.
