New Faces of SF Media
Sites like SFist.com and the Muni Diaries are doing more than just keeping San Franciscans in the know about the latest bar openings or bus brawls. They represent the shift to a new media model based on the interest and participation of the many; gatekeepers no longer decide what the masses want to see or hear, or who gets to give it to them. With heavy-hitting new media companies like Twitter, Yelp, Digg, Wikipedia and Flickr headquartered in the city, it’s no wonder that San Francisco is widely regarded as the home of new media. Get an insider’s perspective from the new leaders of media in SF.
Where do you go for your daily local news jolt? Whose writing is so fresh, witty, hilarious or gutsy that you savor each piece like it's the last of the cake? After the panel, we are hosting up-and-coming media personalities of San Francisco, invitation provided by you. Come to the party to meet, mingle and gush your fandom in person! Beer, wine and food provided by us. To check out the current nominees, go to links below.
