Event Description:

Current communication trends are leaning less toward shared face-to-face interaction and more toward public discourse in virtual, online communities. Blogging is just one of many technological trends that shape the way we share information, stories, and opinions. Margaret Mason, author of No One Cares What You Had for Lunch: 100 Ideas for Your Blog, will encourage participants to think about how they can contribute to this free public forum with their own words and experiences. Mason’s shopping site, www.MightyGoods.com, is one of TIME Magazine’s 50 Coolest Websites. A reception and book-signing will follow. Admission is free. Presented by the Indianapolis-Marion County Public Library and IUPUI School of Library and Information Science.
