Come to our next StandardTalk on Gossip. June 18th, 6:30pm at The Standard, New York.
What’s behind the rumor that has the city abuzz? Why do you keep telling yourself you’ll stop gossiping, but can’t? In the secret world of word-of-mouth, who can journalists trust and how do they source their stories?
Peeling back the curtain on gossip, we look at one of the oldest traditions known to humankind. Today, with the Internet exploding with information, most of it impossible to control, how is it changing and where is it heading?
