Just got a heads up about this streaming live right now. Check it out.
Co-sponsored by Words Beats & Life (WBL) and the Future Music Coalition (FMC) and hosted by Busboys & Poets, this event will feature a national panel of hip-hop bloggers who will give information to those trying to be featured on hip-hop blogs about how to get the attention of these bloggers, optimize web presence, learn what bloggers seek when generating content, and how use technology in acceptable formats. Moderator, Jef Tate (aka frank talk) will guide panelists in a roundtable discussion about pay-to-purchase sites (Band Camp, Itunes, Amazon, etc.): use ‘em or lose ‘em? FMC will also educate the bloggers and audience about legislation and policies currently affecting them and we will address the question: How can we leverage the success of these blogs for social change?
Special guests include Dallas Penn, Jason Reynolds (Okayplayer), Chris Rabb (Afro-netizen), producer extraordinaire and Diamond District member Oddisee, Frank William Miller Junior and Meka Udoh.
