Future Marketing conference #FutureM wrapped up a few days ago but the tweets keep a coming with great advice and tips and people to check out for more information.
The American Society of Newspaper Editor #ASNE is having a Leadership in Diversity shindig at the New York Times on September 19 and 20, 2011. Now I am not a journalist but roaming around the joint I did find a 50 page pdf guide on what newspapers think are the best practices for social media.
The Online News Association #ONA had a gathering this past weekend in Florida (I think) and there is going to be one in Boston on September 21, 2011.
