11 November 201015 November 2010 Main Posts Meanland event: Reading without privacy Editorial team Announcing a very exciting Meanland event – and the last for 2010 – Reading Without Privacy. Today, we’re all reading and writing more than ever, on text messages, on Twitter and on Facebook. But has social networking broken down the distinction between our public and our private lives? What are the rules for writing in forms that are so intimate and entirely open? Do we Tweet as ourselves or as representatives of our employers? And is new media helping us work differently or just work harder? Critic Alison Croggon and Jonathan Green, editor of ABC’s The Drum, discuss these questions and more, with Sophie Cunningham and Jeff Sparrow. Chaired by Michael Williams. When: Tuesday 16 November, 6:15pm-7:15pm Where: The Wheeler Centre, 176 Little Lonsdale Street, Melbourne This a FREE event. Bookings recommended.
