Media EmergenC: Confronting the NAB in San Diego

The National Association of Broadcasters Radio Show kicks off in San Diego in less than two weeks and media activists of all stripes will be ready for their arrival. A coalition of groups has organized a counter-convergence: Media emergenC.
The ambitious schedule runs from October 6-9 and includes everything from workshops to film screenings to a bona-fide “media fair.” RadioActive San Diego/1069FM will provide wall-to-wall coverage; San Diego Indymedia will archive the happenings; and Free Radio San Diego will teach the skills of microradio station construction. No mosquito fleet this time around, though.
Convergence organizers report they’re deep in the hole as far as costs go, primarily because they’re helping pick up keynote speakers’ travel costs yet charging nothing for attendance. Donations are greatly appreciated.
