Portland Grassroots Media Camp begins August 24

Okay. I know all of you folks know how to blog. Some of you use Twitter. Some of you podcast and post videos.

I know that you get the whole “grassroots media” thing.

But what about interacting with the mainstream media? I mean, besides that KATU thing. What about coverage that reaches the non-technically savvy? You know the 99.9% of the population that could use the tool you’re building if they only knew about it?

Enter Portland Grassroots Media Camp. The camp is a free gathering, held August 24-August 26, in a variety of venues around town. And while it focuses on a number of things that you, Mr. or Mrs. Technophile, completely understand, it also offers some sessions on things that you may not understand, specifically:

  • Writing a press release
  • Setting up a press conference

So, if you’re a working by yourself or with a small startup, and building the next big thing sans massive marketing dollars and wily PR agencies, I thought this might be valuable for you.

As our old friend Tom Peterson used to say, “Free is a very good price.”
