Last week we told you about our January Meetup [mb]. To recap: it’s at Oddfellows on Thursday 15 January at 6:30 pm. In the intervening days, the agenda has been expanded from us gossiping about danceoffs and cocktails to have some actual focus. Namely, some people are interested in talking about the implications of the changing news landscape of the city. Business so serious that it even comes with a Facebook event page and a co-host of Mónica Guzmán:
Save the News?
Seattle is on the verge of losing one of its two daily papers. What does that mean for the city? For news readers? For local media and bloggers? Dylan Wilbanks of Seattle Metblogs had an idea that there should be an event in a month or so that gives people a space to talk about this. The objective of this meetup, other than to discuss these things ourselves, is to begin planning that larger event. [facebook]
Of course, if you just want to hang out and help us welcome a fresh crop of new Metbloggers, there will be plenty of time and space for that too. Plus, you should be aware that Oddfellows’s pastry case is home to peanut butter & jelly cupcakes and fruit-loop-enhanced rice krispie treats. You can get your tater tots at the Wildrose [slog] before or after.
