Thanks to four excellent panelists and an interested and engaged audience, we had a great time last night at a discussion titled “Are Blogs and Twitter Improving the Dissemination of Information and News?”
The panel was held at the historic Vilna Shul on Beacon Hill — a bit of a nostalgia trip for me, as I lived less than a block away in 1979-’80.
I’ve posted an MP3 of the discussion. There’s a lot of reverb, and it is difficult to hear members of the audience, who did not use the mic. My apologies. The panelists, in the order in which they spoke, were:
- Doug Banks, the editor of Mass High Tech
- Scott Kirsner, the “Innovation Economy” columnist for the Boston Globe
- Dharmesh Shah, the co-founder and chief technology officer of HubSpot.com
- Adam Gaffin, the co-founder, editor and publisher of Universal Hub
And thanks to Doug Levin, who put together the program.
