As an ongoing resource, this blog spotlights the work of Media Giraffe Project/Journalism That Matters alumni that fosters participatory democracy and community -- starting with "MGP2006" -- the event "Democracy and Independence: Sharing News & Politics in a Connected World" held June 29-July 1, 2006 at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. Organized by the Media Giraffe Project, the event drew some 300 journalists, educators, technologists and political strategists to consider the funding and future of journalism.
