Fwd: Special Event for New York Journalists, Writers, Editors, and Agents
FasterTimes is having a networking night for writers, journalists, video
producers, bloggers, editors, and agents to help raise money for the site.
The Faster Times is a completely independent group of journalists who have
come together in the face of the financial crisis facing American journalism
to look for a new model. Almost all the money raised form the event (as well
as from ads on the site) goes right back to the writers and editors. We
were just featured in a New York Times Magazine
