Lay of the Land

On Tuesday I moderated with my esteemed colleague Ruben Martinez the annual Lay of the Land panel at Loyola Marymount. Ruben, who presents this event, invited me to join him this year as the topic was new media; we dubbed the event The Wired City: Writing the Future of Los Angeles. Our panelists were a diverse group of Angeleno bloggers and new-media gurus: KCET’S Departures producer Juan Devis, Loteria Chicana blogger Cindy Mosqueda, LA Observed‘s Kevin Roderick, and LMU student Kyle DePinna of Shifty Rhythms. While they range from grad-student personal bloggers to public media journalists, they all discussed the opportunities the online world has afforded them. It was interesting and encouraging. Thanks to all for participating. Here’s Kevin’s post on the event.
