Keep your eyes on Media140 #OzPolitics on 23 September

In what is looking like another milestone for Government 2.0 in Australia, the Media140 #OzPolitics event on 23 September at Old Parliament House has an amazing lineup of speakers exploring how the real-time web is changing the face of Australian politics and government engagement.

It features a range of presentations as well as five panels, on
  • How are real time & social media platforms changing political communication?
  • The changing role of traditional political news gatekeepers in the age of the real time web,
  • Controlling the message in the real time web era,
  • Alternative views of political news, and
  • Gov 2.0: Participatory Democracy & Citizen Engagement
Panelists and speakers include Malcolm Turnbull, Rob Oakeshot, Kate Lundy, Scott Ludlum, First Dog on the Moon, Latika Bourke, Bernard Keane and Stephen Collins.

I'll be liveblogging the event (wifi willing) and participating in the Gov 2.0 panel.

I believe it is still possible to register for the event. However if you cannot make it, you can follow it on Twitter via the hashtags #ozpolitics and #media140.
