The event begins at 6:30 pm EST with a conversation between The Atlantic’s James Fallows and Google’s Josh Cohen re: journalism in the digital era, Google’s place in it, followed by drinks, food, and networking.

Don’t expect skimping. Google has a reputation for putting on a nice spread. Technically the event is not open. But if someone really wants to go, e-mail us at fishbowldc AT mediabistro DOT com and we’ll see about getting you acquainted with the organizers.

Journalists and higher-ups from a variety of publications and organizations have RSVP’d to attend, including: WaPo, Bloomberg, LAT, The Atlantic, Wired, Gannet, AJR, WTOP, USA Today, The Poynter Institute, TPM, NPR, Nat. Assoc. of Black Journalists, Nat. Assoc. of Hispanic Journalists, CNN, GWU, and Oxford University.
