rapid response to Wikileaks

The MCDM (with a little help from our friends) is inviting folks to join us this Friday to engage in conversation regarding Wikileaks and its release of documents.

The UW’s Master of Communication of Digital Media (MCDM), in collaboration with the Seattle Public Library and City Club present:

Open Secrets: An Open Conversation about Wikileaks and Information Transparency in America

Seattle Public Library  – Microsoft Auditorium (1000 4th Ave, Seattle, WA)

5:00-7:00 p.m., Friday, December 10, 2010

Admission free, RSVP

Confirmed Subject Matter Experts:

Mike Fancher, Editor at Large of The Seattle Times
Brett Horvath, Director of The Leaders Network
Sarah van Gelder, Editor-in-Chief, Yes! Magazine

Hosted by Hanson Hosein, Director MCDM and Host of Media Space on UWTV
Directed by Scott Macklin, Associate Director MCDM

With the explosion of digital and social media platforms over the past decade, we celebrate the idea of an openness and transparency – especially online.  Is Wikileaks just another platform within this new “open” environment?  Or has the past week’s events provided a harsh lesson in our need to retain control over certain forms of information?  We’ll engage the public in a conversation about the nature of Wikileaks and its impact on our understanding of the Internet.
