Blogging, Journalism, The Net & Free Labor
The Internet has been used to destroy thousands of professional journalist and writers’ jobs. It is also being used to force writers and media workers to work for free and the sale of the Huffington Post for $315 million. And then there's the $4 million annual salary that Huffington is receiving is a vivid example of how the free labor of others is being used to benefit the wealthy. This forum will look at the history of this technology in destroying jobs and how it is now forcing writers and other media workers to work for free.
With labor journalist Mike Elk (by Skype) who was fired by Arriana Huffington’s Post, WGA member and screenwriter Dalessandro James, Steve Zeltzer, of Labor Video Project and a member CWA Free Lancers and Rebecca Rosen Lum, CWA 39521 Guild Freelancers Unit Chair-Pacific Media Workers
