UPDATE: WeMedia Fringe is confirmed for 6:30pm in London. Official program at WeMedia Global Forum is online. Sounds like there is some collaboration between the two which is great!

ORIGINAL POST: Bummer – I will be in London on May 3 but I cant afford the $795 [ cough . . cough ] to attend the WeMedia Global Forum and was wondering what to do. Then i discovered that Robin from Cybersoc is organizing a WeMedia Fringe event for all the poverty-stricken bloggers and info geeks.

  • Why do things like this have to cost so damn much? It really is not fair to those, like yourself, who have much to contribute, and can’t afford to pay to attend.

    It costs so much because it costs so much to produce. But The Media Center totally knows that great ideas and insights often come from people without deep pockets.
    That’s why we always offer fellowships to independent, academic and innovative media that waives fees and sometimes includes lodging and travel stipends. Check out the We Media Fellows for the Global Forum here
    Next We Media: February 2007, Miami. Look out for fellowship announcements for that one, sometime late this year. See you there?
