LinkedIn hosts Bay Area Journalists

You know how to network for jobs on LinkedIn. But do you know how to milk the site for story ideas, contact sources, get traffic for your stories and track the moves of top executives on your beat? We'll learn tips about the best ways to make use of LinkedIn as a journalist in a meeting at the company's Mountain View headquarters. The meeting starts with refreshments and schmoozing, then moves to a high-level presentation by LinkedIn's journalism community manager and San Francisco State University associate professor Yumi Wilson. And as a bonus, attendees will get 1 free year of LinkedIn Premium. (This meeting is already set up through the Online News Association, but SPJ members are more than welcome.)

    Anyone interested in carpooling to this? I'd be leaving from the Castro around 5:30.

    I'm confused. Is there a charge for this?
