Mediafabric conference, Prague on Friday, October 21

leave a comment

I’m talking about the challenges for the future of UK hyperlocal media over in Prague tomorrow at an event which looks like a fascinating mix of journalism from around the world.

Alongside my tales of dog poo, democracy and the hunt for digital revenues (in which readers of this blog are well-versed) there are nine other ‘visual essays’ looking at diverse aspects of journalism.

I intend to blog here from the other talks as much as possible so check back if these topics interest you:

  •  Exposing the CIA’s drone campaign in Pakistan. Speaker: Chris Woods
  •  New forms of journalism in Asia. Speaker: Kunda Dixit
  •  New business models for digital entrepeneurs. Speaker: James Breiner
  •  Hypermedia for a hyperconnected world. Speaker: Leo Prieto
  •  Screen-scraping Latin American media. Speaker: Mariano Blejman
  •  Citizens vs. Governments in Latin America: the impact of social networks in the political landscape. Speaker: Luis Manuel Botello
  •  The future of intelligence, whistleblowing and journalism. Speaker: Annie Machon
  •  Omnipresent news, the content factory approach. Speaker: David Brewer
