Larry Wilson, public editor of the Pasadena Star-News, was the guest speaker at the kickoff of the Citizen Journalism Speaker Series on Wednesday evening.
Bloggers and others gathered in the Donald R. Wright Auditorium at Pasadena Central Library to hear Larry discuss the changing face of professional journalism today and how the average joe can become a competent citizen reporter via blogs, Facebook, cell phones and other social media.
Larry's a blogger, too!
Dean Lee, city editor of Mountain Views News, spoke briefly at the event:
Dean teaches a free class for current and budding citizen reporters every Tuesday at 6 p.m. at 2057 N. Los Robles Ave., at the southwest corner of Los Robles and Woodbury. It's on the first floor of the two-story building (you can't miss it: It has "City of Pasadena" in great big letters). This is where our KPAS studio is!
