Speaking on blogs

This weekend signals the beginning of the Eighth Annual Freelance Convention for Journalists, Artists and Photographers organised by the Media, Entertainment and Arts Alliance. If you're in Sydney, or feel the need to get here, it'll be well worth a visit. Speakers include ABC's Kerry O'Brien and Jonathan Harley and Garry Linnell, editor-in-chief of The Bulletin. They'll be talking on all media matters, including pitching stories to editors, interview techniques and new media.

I'll be speaking on Sunday morning on the topic: "Web Tactics: Blogging and New Technologies." I'll be joined by Trevor Cook, a director of PR firm Jackson Wells Morris. Expect heated debate over the impact of blogging on journalism and perhaps the odd joke about Rupert Murdoch's recent realisation that money could be made on the internet.

Sorry I was supposed to be there on Sunday but I have a work commitment I suggested a few other names so I hope they have found someone. I'm very sorry to be missing it.

Trevor, no worries. Shame. Presumably they'll be someone else there!

I've gotta work on Sunday at 11 but I pop in for your panel session Anthony then I'll scoot off, too bad I won't be able to say hi to Trevor Cook.

To those who grace the city with their presence, I'll try and provide laughs and incisive commentary. Though it does start at 9am....

And no jokes of course about that vibrant Margolian web strategy that Fairfax has adopted...

Ooops, just realised that it would cost me a small African nation and a herd of cattle to see you bang on about blogging so it looks like I'll get to sleep in after all.
