Other Future of News Forum, Dec. 12 at Spill the Wine

ofonClear your calendars next weekend.

A few notable journalism and new media-savvy folks not entirely impressed with MPR’s Future of the News Conference have rallied together to launch their own event — The Other Future of News — and it’s actually happening.

It’s next Saturday at Spill the Wine from 10-5. More info here and here.

What impresses me even more than the passion and drive behind the event organizers is the way they used Google Wave to plan the event, including relevant use of the tool’s crowd-sourcing, instant polling and discussion thread capabilities.

It looks like a great event with great topics. But if nothing else, this event is worth it to me for that.

Can’t attend. Follow the hashtag #ofon.

Update: Just saw that I wasn’t the only one impressed with David Brauer’s use of Google Wave.

Update 2: RSVP here
