|Import this event into your personal calendar.|
Do you want to get involved with the SF Bay Area Independent Media Center?
Do you want to find out a bit more about how it all works?
Learn more about the Indymedia network and how you can help our local Bay Area site continue to be the useful project that it is. Indybay can use help with the site itself, from posting to editing, to tasks like organizing events and so forth.
Regarding the site, we'll talk about how to post news, photos, video and audio. We'll discuss things that go on behind the scenes like what happens once something is posted to the newswire. We'll share with you how stories get made into center column features and what types of editorial decisions are made regarding features, posts, and comments. We welcome you to ask questions about your areas of interest in helping with the site or Indybay in general.
Indybay's points of unity state that we are "anti-capitalist" and "anti-oppression." If these values are in line with your own, you find that the subject matter covered in the center columns of the website tends to agree with your own politics, and maybe you are especially interested in one (or more) feature page, you're invited to come to this orientation.
At the orientation, we will explain what the Indybay is all about. If you would like to get involved, at any level, come by and find out more!
