MIT Panel: “News, Nerds and Nabes”: How Will Future Americans Learn About the Local?

Back in June, the MIT Center for Future Civic Media hosted a conference for the Knight Foundation. Professor Henry Jenkins moderated a panel called: “News, Nerds and Nabes’: How Will Future Generations of Americans Learn About the Local.” The panelists were Alberto Ibargüen, president and CEO of the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation and Eric Klinenberg, professor of sociology at New York University and author of “Fighting for Air:The Battle to Control America’s Media”

Jenkins just posted this video and a follow-up interview he did with Klinenberg here.
