Journos and Bloggers and Bacon and Beer: Oh, my! #SMBMSP #20 October 31, 2009

Social Media Breakfast Minneapolis-St. Paul convened Friday morning at Summit Brewing in St. Paul, MN  for a superb panel on Journalism, Bloggers and where do we go from here?   And Yes, there was beer to go with our bacon! 

Panel Discussion: Social Media and Journalism
A spirited panel discussion with local journalists on how traditional media is using/adapting/ignoring/embracing social media.

Facilitated by Julio Ojeda-Zapata (@jojeda), a technology writer and columnist at the St. Paul Pioneer Press and author of the book, Twitter Means Business.

Panel members:

  • Jason DeRusha (@DeRushaJ), investigative reporter, WCCO-TV
  • David Brauer (@dbrauer), media reporter,
  • Gene Rebeck (@generebeck), senior editor, Twin Cities Business Magazine
  • Julia Schrenkler (@juliaschrenkler), interactive producer, Minnesota Public Radio
  • Dirk DeYoung (@ddeyoung), editor, Business Journal

Wind and Rain threatened the outside of the building located on the Mississippi River; as we tossed between the panel of Twin Cities Journalists and the ever questioning social media geeks in the audience, the sunshine suddenly streamed through the windows.    A few photos for your memory book below:

Rick Mahn and Mykl  Roventine have done a superb job of organizing Social Media Breakfast Minneapolis St. Paul (#smbmsp).   Shareology is especially impressed with their use of sponsorships to power this group.  A tip of the beer stein to them both and a huge Thank You! to Rick, Mykl and all the SMBMSP sponsors!
