Tweet-up and panel discussion tomorrow (in Dubai)

While few, if any, of you will be able to attend, I still thought you’d be interested in knowing about an event I’ll be participating in tomorrow. I hope to send updates via Twitter, but I’m afraid of AT&T’s data roaming charges on my iPhone so probably won’t do any live-tweeting unless there is wifi.

From the press release:

On May 24th, SAE Institute Dubai will launch its inaugural Digital Journalism program with a Tweet-up and panel at Shelter Dubai, kicking off at 7 pm.

New media has changed how news is reported and experienced. Who are these new journalists? What are their tools? Can the ‘old’ media survive? And what do audiences gain from ‘Journalism 2.0?’

Speakers for the event are:

Mark Briggs–blogger, journalist and author of Journalism 2.0 (2007), Journalism Next (2009) and CEO and co-founder of Serra Media.
Pia Heikkila–documentarian, producer, and backpack journalist filing stories her laptop around the Middle East.
Nabila Usman–writer and journalist, business development executive at, an online news portal.
Khaled Khalifa – Head of Office, United Nations – Integrated Regional Information Network (IRIN) Middle East and Asia Bureau.

The discussion will be moderated by Reg Athwal, Co-Founder and Chairman of online television platform
