On August 23rd, bloggers, engaged filmmakers, photographers and citizen journalists, media experts, alternative and independent media practitioners, and web entrepreneurs from a media landscape in turmoil will gather at Montreal’s Congress Center for the 2nd annual Citizen Media Rendez-Vous. They will participate in two open roundtable discussions on the use of citizen created media to better inform and mobilise the public.
On behalf of Montréal Ouvert, Jean-Noé Landry will participate on the morning panel on accessing and appropriating citizen media during which he will address open-data issues. For more details on this not-to-be-missed event visit: http://citizen-media.ca. Online registration is free but mandatory.
