Invite Dr Margaret Simons as Guest Speaker

  • Needs a date

  • Needs a location

  • I suggest we collaborate with @MargaretSimons who is the new head of @AdvncdJrnlsm at @unimelb

    Her latest book "Journalism at the Crossroads" is about innovating the practice of journalism by embracing social networking/citizen journalism, new technology and business models.

    See her discussing it here:

    It would be great to have her give a talk/presentation at the next Hacks Hackers meetup in Melbourne.

    I like this idea. Could we maybe expand it to be a bit more conversational - have someone who's a bit more 'hacker' and they can bounce off each other? Not sure who, just an idea...

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
