FTC Hosts Workshop On the Internet and Journalism

The Federal Trade Commission is hosting a workshop on the future of journalism. From the FTC website, here's more:

The Federal Trade Commission will hold two days of workshops on December 1 and 2, 2009, to explore how the Internet has affected journalism. The event is free and open to the public.  The workshop will assemble representatives from print, online, broadcast and cable news organizations, academics, consumer advocates, bloggers, and other new media representatives.

Updates regarding the December 1 and 2, 2009 workshops, including an agenda and panelists will be posted on this webpage, or can be accessed via RSS Feed from this webpage.

Due to the large number of pre-registrants, we anticipate that the FTC's Conference Center will reach full capacity. Pre-registration does not guarantee seating, and attendees will be admitted on a first-come, first-served basis starting at 8 a.m. each day.  Please remember to bring a picture ID.  Once the Conference Center is full, attendees will be directed to an overflow room located in the FTC Headquarters building at 600 Pennsylvania, Ave. NW, Washington, DC, 20580.  The workshop will also be webcast via a link on this webpage.
