National Conference For Media Reform

The 2013 National Conference for Media Reform is over! Free Press would like to thank all the conference-goers and presenters who gathered in Denver to fight for better media.

We tweeted, streamed, blogged and snapped pics throughout our amazing three-day event, so take some time to check out our conference coverage. You can visit the full archive of video and audio recordings here. And you can download a copy of our report here.

Conference Highlights

Those who've visited the Conference Commons might have noticed a potted fern meandering around. And this fern doesn’t just walk — no, it also talks (about Net Neutrality, among other matters) as it senses people approaching.

The Commons is, indeed, a place where anything can happen.

Check out the Tech and Media Lab. The lab will be open throughout the conference … so stop by to learn, troubleshoot and gain hands-on experience with tech and media tools.

Conversation about broadband turns wonky real quick. How can we talk about the Internet in plain language? #ncmr13

Hearing from many #NCMR13's global participants about media challenges in their countries. It's clear that this movement knows no borders
