The much-ballyhooed (by me) News 2.0 Forum is going on tonight at the offices of Enquirer Media.

Local readers, I hope, will be there in person. If you’d like to attend in spirit – check it out on UStream (thanks to Cincinnati Social Media). We’ll be live from 5 to 6:30 or you can catch it after the fact.

Here’s the lineup of speakers and topics:
