Dear FoME members,

With less than two months to go until the 2011 FoME Symposium: “Hype or 
Hope? The impact of digital media on journalism and development” the 
event is taking shape and we are happy to announce our first speakers:

* Brenda Burrell (Freedom Fone) and Sean Mc Donald (FrontlineSMS) are 
experts in mobile reporting and will share insights on the power or 
mobile reporting for the collection and dissemination of news

* Gordana Igric (Balkan Investigative Reporting Network BIRN) and 
Gustavo Gorriti (Peruvian Investigative Reporter), will be speaking on 
the future of investigative journalism and new business models

* Dr. Carl-Christian Buhr (European Digital Agenda Commissioner) will be 
introducing the topic of data journalism

Not only are our speakers coming from all over the world: Over 40 people 
have registered for the conference– including participants from London 
to Chennai, from Washington D.C. to La Paz. This means around half the 
places are taken. Be sure to secure your place at the 2011 Symposium by 
simply registering online at 

Have you made your own experiences working with new media and media 
development? If so, please take a few minutes to share your experiences 
by participating in our survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/FOME2011 
- it will only take a few minutes and will help us learn about current 
projects and approaches.

Looking forward to hearing about your experiences and welcoming you in 
Bonn, Germany on October 25th and 26th!
