Rising Tide 8 

New media conference Sept. 14 at Xavier; cotton to keynote

  Rising Tide, the annual new-media conference staged by many of New Orleans' bloggers, is set for Sept. 14 at Xavier University. This year's keynote speaker will be Deborah "Big Red" Cotton, the Gambit correspondent who was one of 19 injured last May in the Mother's Day second-line shooting in the 7th Ward. Others announced on the preliminary schedule include Gambit's Megan Braden-Perry, who will speak about personal branding and social media, and Times-Picayune columnist Jarvis DeBerry, who will moderate the "Writers of Color" panel. Tickets for Rising Tide 8 are $20 in advance ($18 for students), and can be purchased at the organization's website, — Kevin Allman
