I’m at Highway Africa, an annual journalism conference that brings together some of the continent’s most Internet-savvy folks to discuss ways to boost African journalism. It’s my third visit to the gathering, held in Grahamstown, South Africa, and sponsored by the journalism school at Rhodes University and SABC, the country’s biggest broadcaster. The theme this […]

I’m honored to be speaking at the upcoming Kosmopolis 2008 in Barcelona, Spain. The biennial gathering, held this year in late October, brings together an amazing group of people involved in literature and the arts. I’ll be part of a program on the future of journalism.

Bill Moyers on Media's Future

Bill Moyers is headlining the National Conference on Media Reform in Minneapolis, and just gave a powerful pitch for network neutrality and why journalism’s future is key to the future of democracy.

NewsTools 2008 Conference

Journalists and technologists will rub elbows from April 30 through May 3 in Sunnyvale, California, at a conference called “NewsTools 2008” — a gathering that promises to bring together people who really need to know each other better. Pro journalists don’t use the available technology smartly enough — though they’re improving at this — and […]
