Today I'm at the Networked Journalism Summit at the City University of New York (CUNY) Graduate School of Journalism. It's bringing together "the best practices and practitioners in collaborative, pro-am journalism [Thanks!]...This is a day about action: next steps, new projects, new partnerships, new experiments. The first two-thirds of the day will be devoted to sharing lessons, ideas, and plans with a representative sample of different kinds of efforts, hyperlocal to national to international, with participants from big and small media, from editorial and business, from the U.S., Canada, the U.K, Germany, and France. The last third of the day will be devoted to what’s next, with participants meeting to come up with new collaborations."
The not-so-under-current of anxiousness in the room seems to be: how does journalism evolve, both as a profession and as a business, amid the flood of new mediums and techniques?
Keep an eye on the conference blog, where updates will be posted during the day; there's also a link to live video coverage.
