Denver Open Media is hosting the Western Regional Alliance for Community Media Conference, Oct 23-25, 2008 in Denver, CO. We will be showcasing the Drupal Modules being developed to empower user-generated media in our communities through Public Access TV stations and Community Technology Centers. The conference will be highlighting the new media technologies and efforts that allow access centers to operate on a streamlined, user-driven model.

Deproduction has assembled a stellar Drupal Development team since being awarded the Knight NewsChallenge award, and they are making significant progress towards the first benchmark of our process: developing a robust set of custom Drupal Modules, ready to deploy in our beta-test group of 6 Public Access TV and Community Technology Centers across the US.

Participants include Free Speech TV, OurMedia, KGNU, LinkTV, the Media and Democracy Coalition, and dozens of Public Access TV stations and CTCs from across the nation. Its not too late to get involved, participate in a panel, or register to attend. For more information, please visit accesswithoutborders.org
