An accidental empire

An accidental empire – the rise of political blogging and its effect on conventional media.

That’s the topic of an address by Fran O’Sullivan will be delivering to a Rual Women NZ breakfst in Wellington on Tuesday September 29 from 7.15am to 8.15am.

The meeting is being held in the Horticulture New Zealand Boardroom, Level 2, Huddart Parker Building, Post Office Square, (opposite Queen’s Wharf).

An email from RWNZ told me to tell friends and colleagues from which I gather that anyone is welcome to attend. There is no charge but RSVPs are requested to: noeline.holt@ruralwomen.org.nz 0r tracygalland@xtra.co.nz

    Well obviously I’m NOT a rural woman, but what struck me about this is the idea of rural women needing to plough through the Wellington traffic to be in town for a 7:15 breakfast. Wouldn’t it be easier to hold the event somewhere, well, rural?

    Bill – it’s open to anyone and as Lambcut explains at Roarprawn: The Breakfast Meetings are usually fairly small networking opportunities hosted by RWNZ for various industry group representatives and government officials to get together and discuss common concerns. The September 29 Breakfast Meeting is a special event designed to attract a wider audience. Everyone is welcome!

    It’s been so successful at attracting a wider audience they’ve had to move to a bigger venue: D4 on Featherston St.
