The first day, Thursday, I spent quality travel time with Karen Toering of Reclaim the Media and Angela Ballantyne of UW Communication Studies. We arrived at the airport early in the morning, before the storms started kicking up.

Then I caught up with Nathan James of Media and Democracy Coalition, who is live-blogging the conference. I’m having JavaScript problems for some reason, so here is the link: http://phasetransitions.blogspot.com/

I was able to speak on mic with Robert McChesney of Free Press and Marc Cooper of Consumer Federation of America. Listen for this and more fresh audio on Digital Crossroads Friday June 13th and 20th.

The academic symposium was pretty cool. I attended some research presentations. I think my favorite was “Sustaining Independent Media” featuring Cynthia Cotti on LPFM licenses as agents of localism, Jessica Clark & Tracy Van Slyke on measuring media impact, Adam Davis looking at the political economy of Current TV, Caroline Nappo on the significance of librarianship for media reform. I’m hoping to have all these awesome graduate student folks on Digital Crossroads soon.

Then I caught a swim at the Hyatt and a nap.

Go to freepress.net/conference and Free Speech TV to watch events of the conference as they happen.
