Where: Alki Community Arts Center, Seattle, WA
Address: 2820 Alki Avenue SW
When: November 16, 2010
Time: 5:45 pm - 9pm

What is most critical in your view? Join us to weigh in and share what you see as the most pressing needs to support a vibrant news ecology across the Pacific Northwest and beyond.

As a 2010 – 2011 Reynolds Fellow, and West Seattle native, Lisa Skube will be conducting a series of small gatherings. Bringing together local community news networks, your thoughts inform the build of an online platform for sharing, discussion and collaboration slated to launch early year 2011. This project borrows from the simplistic nature of successful community web based social platforms.

The project is intended to serve as an intersection where many networks gain access to the rich diversity of knowledge that exists across networks. Simplicity and ease of connection guide the platform design. The common needs of the community will help us optimize the platform to best serve your work.
