  • This location is shown only to members

(Note the location change for this week only - Merlin's has a private party tonight. The Blue Moon is just a couple blocks east on Lake Street - see you there!)

This week our guest Derek Brommerich (The Derek Brommerich Show - will show us how citizen journalism is revolutionizing the media industry, and how we all can be effective citizen journalists, and maybe even make a buck or two doing it!



1.Large media outlets are breaking up, and layoffs are occurring frequently. We'll look at the statistics behind the numbers, and how volunteer citizen journalism can have a market impact.

2.What is a citizen journalist? Learn about the many options we have in the creation of content.

3. Cool gear and gadgetry for the citizen journalist.

4.Modern ethics. Some of the ethics of the trade.

5. Market of ideas. Free market advocates believe in letting the market sort things out. What if we had a market of ideas? We should all receive our news from outlets that meet our standards. The best ideas have greater chance of winning out.

6. Principles and goals. What this means for liberty.
