Independent journalists meet in Houston, propose forming a coalition

Ford Fischer from News2Share and Nicholas Bernabe discuss the future of independent media and propose an informal Indie Media Coalition at a gathering last Saturday, January 12, in Houston, TX.

Ford discussed Facebook Purge 3.0 on October 11 and the problem of the “co-admin status” which Facebook as actually encouraged me to use on my page to help me be identified (yesterday’s post).
At one point Ford made the observation that indie media often is viewed as looking “bloggy”.  What would “Blogtyrant” have said about that (before last June)?

The alternative crypto site “Minds” was discussed.
Bernabe said “we can’t count on third parties”.  He reminds me of how the “United Artists” movie distributor was founded decades ago.
