Media in Transition (MiT6 at MIT)


HJI’m honored (not to mention intimidated) to be joining a panel with some of my favorite super-smart people (Ellen Hume, Pat Aufderheide, Jessica Clark, rock star* Jake Shapiro plus Dean Jansen whom I don’t know yet but am sure is also very cool) at the Media in Transition conference on Friday evening in Cambridge. The conference runs at MIT this Thursday – Sunday and it is so jammed with interesting presentation that my brain is spinning just reading the abstracts. I hope I can find a few things from my oddball pragmatist int’l development perspective that will be interesting to these folks. Looking forward to learning a lot.

* no, I mean literally a rock star.

Since then, four bi-annual conferences have been held, co-sponsored by CMS and the MIT Communications Forum, with each new conference generating a more internationally diverse audience than its predecessor. “
