If our marketing has been anywhere near successful, you should have heard about news:rewired by now – 14 January 2010. It’s Journalism.co.uk’s first big conference event, marking our 10th anniversary (my boss John Thompson set it up in 1999). It’s been fun getting it going and the delegate / speaker list looks pretty damn good, if I do say so myself. Follow @newsrewired on Twitter.
Buy your ticket before it’s too late. Here’s the blurb.
Who it’s for:
We want news:rewired to be an event for working journalists, trainees, journalism students and academics to learn new multimedia, social media and online skills from those with first-hand experience.
This event will be informal – with plenty of time for questions, networking and hopefully some new partnerships.
What we hope you’ll get:
First-hand advice on using new technologies, tools and skills for online journalism, whether that’s presentation or newsgathering;
Practical case studies from those who are pioneering new techniques in journalism;
Advice on what works and what doesn’t – from video and audio, to third-party websites and using data;
A chance to meet, network and share ideas with colleagues from across the industry.
