I thought members of your group would be interested in a meetup being
organised by 21st Century Network. So just to say, it is not too late to
book into ?The New Media World? for a meetup on Tuesday July 7th at 6.30pm.
This meeting will look at the new media and how it has impacted on both the
traditional media as an institution and a profession and also changed
profoundly the relationship between the media and politics.

utube!. Is this the shape of politics and the media in this century?
