Meeting of minds 2007: the user is the content

On April 26th, C.H.I.P.S. organizes a debate that focuses on the impact of user generated content on traditional media, publishers and cultural organizations.

They lined up an impressive list of speakers and attendees, including people like Bob Young (former CEO of RedHat and CEO of LuLu.com) and Loïc Le Meur (blogger and former director SixApart).

And what's best? The event conveniently takes place in my home town of Antwerp (Belgium).

I'm pretty convinced that by now traditional media organizations have what they desperately needed: a clue — but I'll bring my big foam cluebat nonetheless, I'll wear my NowPublic advisor hat and I'll bring a number of community experts. ;)
