Where: Columbia Graduate School of Journalism, Lecture Hall, third floor; 116th Street and Broadway, New York (see map)

  1. To my knowledge, there is no Webcast. The Web page from Columbia has almost no information on it. Maybe this week they will add something, but I have no control over that.

  2. Mindy– Were I in NY, I’d try to make it. I’m curious if you can quiz Josh about Google News and the “First Click Free” concept, which allows readers to end-run around paywalls. I covered this in Part 5 of my series on TimesSelect that I mentioned to the ONA list today.
