Journalism’s ideals meet Silicon Valley’s tools in a three-day, conceptual mashup hosted by the Journalism That Matters Collaborative, the Media Giraffe Project, the Northern California Society of Professional Journalists (SPJ) and Yahoo! Inc.
NewsTools2008.org is three days to describe and invent tools for sustaining "journalism that matters." Strip away the legacy platforms, and what remains of journalism that is needed to support participatory democracy and community?
Spend a day describing those core values and essential elements. Then journalists and technologists together launch projects, form design circles and breakouts to conceive or deploy the best tools -- off the shelf and invented on-the-fly -- to put those values and elements into practice.
Learn about the key technologies now driving innovation in the news. On Saturday morning, present and enjoy a JournaTech Expo as companies and individuals display their ideas, products and services.
