Conference for Media Reform Welcome Party"  with Press Pass TV tonight 
(April 7th) at 7 p.m. at encuentro 5, 33 Harrison Ave., 5th Flr., in 
Boston's Chinatown. Featuring the music of Toussiant the Liberator!

And here's the Facebook event page


Also, as a local host committee member-organization, Open Media Boston 
will be active at this weekend's National Conference for Media Reform - 

So here's our conference schedule (all conference locations will be 
announced in the final NCMR program onsite)

Tomorrow, April 8th, at 1 p.m. we'll be co-hosting the NCMR's Boston 
Caucus with the Design Studio for Social Intervention.

Saturday, April 9th, at 2 p.m. we'll be co-hosting a roundtable on 
forming a Boston media reform network with Free Press

Our roving reporters David Goodman and Peter Miller will be taking in 
the scene and writing up reports, and all OMB affiliated folks 
(including Carly Maltais and I) will be sending out tweets on Twitter at 
the NCMR hashtag: #ncmr11

We'll also have a booth in the exhibition area where we'll be hanging 
out between events and meeting and greeting.

We'll also be running the live Free Speech TV NCMR feed at 
www.openmediaboston.org through the entire conference.

So please come participate in our events and say hi if you're attending 

And come to tonight's party - it's open to all!
