In L.A.? Free Event on Technology and the Movies, February 19th

Scott Kirsner of the cool blog CinemaTech ( will be partnering with USC to put together an evening event on Thursday, February 19th. It's being jointly organized by the Stevens Institute for Innovation, the Annenberg School for Communication, and the Entertainment Technology Center.

It's being called "Innovation in Hollywood: Past Present & Future," and it happens 3 days before the 2009 Oscars, on the USC campus. Scott will be giving a quick overview of Hollywood's tech history, and then moderating a panel of modern-day innovators. It's free -- but you do have to RSVP. Come on by and/or spread the word to folks in LA who might want to join us.

See ya there!
