Find the Sydney Citizen Journalism meetup here. The meetup intends to cover all issues of interest to citizen journalism and all event types from workshops through to panel/ group discussion, public excursions & hackfests. The meetup aims to be non-partisan in that it welcomes people from all backgrounds and political views. Still working on a venue for formal events but the social/planning stream is up and running.
