Gillmor to keynote World Editors Forum

Editors’ Weblog: Dan Gillmor will keynote the 12th World Editors Forum, an annual gathering of 300 editors from around the world. (In 2005, the forum will be held in Seoul, South Korea, from 29 May to 1 June.)
Bertrand Pecquerie says: ” I’m very pleased that Dan Gillmor accepted my invitation for two reasons: first, his decision to leave the San Jose Mercury News at the end of the year and to create a new organization focused on “participatory journalism” is an example for all of us. Nowadays it’s not so common for writers to put their theory into practice! Second, I’m sure a lot of European editors will not share Gillmor’s views expressed in his latest book We the Media. ”
Dan is a strong journalist, top blogger, and all-around thoughtful, smart person—it is exciting news that his voice will be given such prominence at this event. (And if you have not seen his book, We the Media– pick it up.)
