   2008 Forum on Meeting  the Public's Information Needs in Silicon Valley

Dear Todd:

I know this is late notice, but, on Monday, September 8, 2008, the Knight
Commission on the Information Needs of Communities in a Democracy (
www.knightcomm.org) is holding a full-day public forum at Google
Headquarters (Building 43, Tunis Room, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway) in
Mountain View, California.  The forum is entitled, "Meeting the Public's
Information Needs in Silicon Valley."  The event is one of three such forums
being held around the country to give the Commission a deeper understanding
of how people in the geographically relevant area get news and information,
how news and information is translated into how people engage with
information and one another, what needs or subcommunities are under-served
in the area, and the challenges and opportunities facing local media.
 Monday's forum is divided into three roundtables -- one on unmet community
information needs, one on media in Silicon Valley, and one on the prospects
for technology and innovation to improve the local information environment.
 The day's agenda appears at http://www.informationneeds.org/content/events.

The event is free and open to the public, but anyone who wishes to attend
must RSVP by 4:30 p.m. tomorrow (September 5) to Erin Silliman at
erin.silliman at aspeninstitute.org.  If there are blogs or listserves to which
you could post this news today, you would be doing the Knight Commission
(and me!) a huge favor.

With best regards, Peter
