OpenFile (Ottawa) Launch Party
I attended Ottawa’s branch for Openfile at Spin Kitchen and Bar on November 26, 2010.
It was a way to meet people and those interested or concerned in Ottawa.
Its a brand of collaborative community journalism.
Here is what the site is:
“You open a file.
We assign a reporter.
Openfile Ottawa shape local news.”
Here are photos from the launch party.
Sorry if they happen to be the same people and was not expecting to take photos.
Afterwards I went to this show at Raw Sugar Cafe.
