Fireside Chat at the Sorrento

Talk twitter; have dinner

By Kathryn Robinson August 17, 2009

Tonight, join Ross Reynolds of KUOW’s “The Conversation” as he talks twitter with UW digital media expert and former NBC News war correspondent, Hanson Hosein.

The Fireside Room at the noble Sorrento Hotel will be the backdrop for the interview, recalling the cozy bar’s storied history as a setting for music, poetry readings, and civic forums.

Tonight the topic will be the rapid changes for business and media brought on by digital technology and social media. Will Twitter abide? What’s the future of social networking? What’s the future of news?

The free chats will happen monthly, for broadcast on Reynolds’ show. September’s Fireside Chat? The Bullitt Foundation’s Denis Hayes.

And after? As long as you’re at the Sorrento, might as well pop into the Hunt Club for a bite.
