This is one of those things i’ll try not to miss: Journalism.co.uk, the online journalism website par excellence, is turning 10, and they’re organizing a conference dedicated to what-you-know-what. So if you’re into the present and future of journalism, sign up, it’s on the 14th of January and it costs the fair amount of 80£. By the way, have i ever told you that my blog is on their list?
In Journalism.co.uk’s own words:
news:rewired, a one-day meet-up organised by Journalism.co.uk at City University, London will bring together leading multimedia journalists and digital news editors and look beyond our industry to data experts and e-commerce specialists, generating original ideas for ways of working and practical advice you can use straightaway.
news:rewired wants to help you do better journalism – whether that’s learning the basics of videojournalism or discovering new social media tools through which to tell your stories – by providing speakers who are already changing how it’s done.
“It’s always been our goal to educate as well as observe at Journalism.co.uk, and news:rewired represents the culmination of our accumulated efforts in that direction over the past decade,” added Journalism.co.uk founder John Thompson.
Multimedia, mash-ups and making money – this is the news business rewired.
