Kauffman forum focuses on blogging opportunities, challenges

In case you’re not able to spend all day Wednesday in Kansas City for the fifth annual Kauffman Foundation “Economics Bloggers Forum,” then don’t fret.

You’re in luck because the event may be accessed via webcast and will be streamed live throughout the day, running from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Here’s more from the folks at Kauffman:

This year’s forum will look back at the development of the weblogging conversation and explore future opportunities and challenges that await.

Following a welcome address by weblogger Brad Delong, professor of Economics, University of California at Berkeley, the forum will begin with a keynote panel discussion on economics and financial weblogging and its future.

Moderated by Kansas City, Mo., Mayor Sly James, panelists include Hal Varian, chief economist at Google, and Joshua Gans, the Jeffrey Skoll Chair in Technical Innovation and Entrepreneurship at the Rotman School of Management, University of Toronto.

Topics to follow include discussions about new modes and orders in education; the tools, networks and communities webloggers will use in the future; the future and sustainability of financial and mainstream journalism and weblogging; and weblogging issues for “ivy-covered” academia.

For a full agenda, visit www.kauffman.org/EconBlogForum and follow the discussion on Twitter #Kauffmanwebloggers.
