Looking for a little stimulus of the mind this evening? Perhaps a laugh too. Jon Carroll, he of the daily, eminently readable, Chronicle column, will be “in conversation” with Scott Rosenberg at the Berkeley Rep tonight at 7pm.

Rosenberg (pictured left), author of Say Everything: How Blogging Began, What it’s Becoming and Why it Matters, is a prolific blogger as well as co-founder of Salon Media Group and Salon.com. Hi current projects include MediaBugs which aims to be a public bug-tracker for Bay Area news coverage. Rosenberg says he will talk about Say Everything, blogging, the transformation of media, MediaBugs, and “whatever else Jon decides we should talk about”.

Proceeds of the evening benefit Park Day School. Tickets are available on the school’s website or on the door.
