Tuesday, October 9, 7:00 p.m., at Housing Works Used Book Cafe, 126 Crosby St. (at Houston St.) SOLD OUT online but a number of walk-ups will be admitted.
Jane Jacobs and other activists were canny media strategists, and they worked both mainstream and alternative outlets to spread their messages, affect public perception and try to create both community and change. Today, blogging and other virtual forms of journalism are being used to greater and lesser effect by activists, developers and others trying to shape the debate over the city's future.
Sewell Chan of the New York Times will lead a panel including Norman Oder of atlanticyardsreport.com, Alberto Vourvoulias-Bush of El Diario, author Gay Talese, and Jane Hamsher of firedoglake.com considering the lineage of activist journalism from Jane Jacobs’s pamphleteering to today’s online investigative journalism and community organizing.
