The 3rd Annual Aljazeera Forum is starting officially tomorrow. The forum is about "Media and the Middle East - Beyond the Headlines". The keynote speaker for the first day is non-other-than Seymour Hersh. The first day will have three sessions, and the second day will have only two sessions. For us bloggers the session on new media "Speaking Truth to Power" will be most interesting. Ethan and alaa will be on the panel, that's exciting and looking forward to it.
All the sessions will be available as podcasts and interviews with some of the delegates will be on YouTube. The official blog for the forum is here. I'll be blogging, not live, from the forum.
