Early Bird pricing for Now Media symposium extended

wikileaks selected nodes Early Bird pricing for next week's symposium "Now Media: Engagement based on Information not Platforms" has been extended through this Wednesday. Sign-up now to guarantee a spot for you and possibly your team (group discounts are available).

This one-day event, presented by the MountainRunner Institute with the support of InterMedia, will develop greater understanding of today's global informational and physical environment. Topics will include the cross-over of new to old media by Wikileaks (see the network diagram above developed by Ali Fisher of Mappi Mundi and Ali's most recent post on MountainRunner), the cross-over from old to new media with the example of General McChrystal and the Rolling Stone, shifting from "target audiences" to "relevant participants," and frank discussions on the organizational, doctrinal, and legal challenges (real and imagined) facing the US today.

Registration and more information may be found here.

Update: Interestingly, the Rolling Stone article has created increased interested in General McChrystal's father, which in turn led to significant interest in a quote the late Major General Herbert McChrystal here at MountainRunner.
