Calling all you digital journalist types! Digital Journalism Social Hour returns November 16

Digital Journalism Social Hour. It was a regular gathering of bloggers, podcasters, and traditional journalists organized by Abraham Hyatt, former managing editor of Oregon Business Magazine and now production editor at ReadWriteWeb.

You might remember a little thing called Digital Journalism Social Hour. It was a regular gathering that sprung out of the inaugural Digital Journalism Camp—an unconference for  bloggers, podcasters, and traditional journalists—organized by Abraham Hyatt, former managing editor of Oregon Business Magazine and now production editor at ReadWriteWeb.

Well, the event took a bit of hiatus. And it was sorely missed. But now—with the help of Betsy Richter of Redoing Media—it’s back.

So what the heck do social digital journalist do for an hour (or more)?

Digital Journalism Social Hour is an informal monthly meet up where we discuss topics and projects that impact journalists in Oregon and Southwest Washington. Come meet your peers, have a drink and talk about what’s changing our industry. This month’s topic is “Collaboration.” What does that mean to us as individual journalists, as competitors and as members of a larger community?

Sounds interesting right? I know. Hold your horses though. I’m actually posting before an event happens for once. Like almost a whole week. Will wonders never cease?

So, if you’ve got a blog or a podcast or you’re a reporter or you’re just interested in all that sort of thing, plan to swing by Digital Journalism Social Hour at NedSpace Old Town, November 16 starting at 7:30 PM. To give them an idea of how many people are coming, please RSVP on Upcoming. For more information, see the post on the resurrection of Digital Journalism Social Hour on Digital Journalism Portland.
