Here are excerpted feedback comments from participants in New Pamphleteers/New Reporters:
- From Mary Treacy, the Minn. Coalition on Government Information:
This was an excellent, invigorating, free thinking gathering. Thank you. I learned so much and met some of the world's best communicators. I had to leave early today so I missed the wrap-up, but I am confident that my sentiments were expressed often and better by my new colleagues. Thank you for all of your work that resulted in a unique and wonderful learning experience for all of us.
- From Melissa Cornick, a New Jersey-based video producer:
- I came to your conference seeking greater knowledge of the world
outside of network media and the information available was
invaluable . . . You, however inadvertently, provided a moment in my life that I will
always value and remember . . . Thanks, again. I had become "the voiceless" and your conference gave me a voice.
- From Edward Hodgman, executive director, Understanding Government, Washington, D.C.
- Thanks so much for a great, great event in Minneapolis. I learned so much and met some amazing people. Thanks again for a great discussion -- it was really energizing and educational.
- From Dante Chinni, Christian Science Monitor's Patchwork Nation project director
- I found the Journalism that Matters conference in MInneapolis to be extrmely helpful in terms of getting a better understanding of what place blogging is and how it can be a partner in newsgathering for the 21st Century. I left with concrete ideas for new partnerships for my employer, The Christian Science Monitor, that we are already acting on.
