WNBC Hosts Blogger Summit: Come in Your PJs!

If you’re not ready for the feminist art summit, how about a summit for Pajama Journalists, otherwise known as bloggers? (What do you think CultureGrrl was wearing when she posted on Rutelli and True today at 2 a.m.? Wouldn’t you like to know!)

Those of you who have been following CultureGrrl from the very beginning (and that’s nobody, because I did it secretly for two weeks, to see if I could stand it) know that the person you have to blame for all this blather is Sreenath Sreenivasan, associate professor at the Columbia University School of Journalism, who got me started when he conducted a brief how-to-blog seminar last April at Alumni Weekend.

Now Sree, who has begun “a tech-reporting gig” at WNBC NewsChannel 4 in New York (online and on TV), has e-mailed an invitation to his disciples and our friends (that means you) to the WNBC Blogger Summit, which he will moderate.

Here are the details:

Join other bloggers who cover news, politics, entertainment, arts, culture, sports and more from the New York area for an evening of discussion and networking.

Please feel free to send this invitation to other local bloggers you think might be interested, in case we missed them.

WHEN: Wednesday, January 31 from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
WHERE: NBC Studios, 30 Rockefeller Plaza, Studio 6B
RSVP to: Erin Monteiro by January 24
You MUST RSVP if you plan to attend due to security issues.
E-mail Erin.Monteiro@nbcuni.com with the blogger’s name, name of the blog, web address and a brief description of your blog.

And here’s the clincher, for those of us who make no money from our maunderings:

Food will be served!
