  • Changing News Rooms and News Consumers

    by Bruce Koon, Andrew Haeg, Emily Bell and Lisa Frazier

    How are newsrooms adjusting to the changing digital news environment? How do they balance transparency and objectivity? How are news consumers responding to information published in new ways? What behaviors and skills are news consumers developing to help them negotiate and evaluate the validity and trustworthiness of the news? What mores and values are emerging from news producers and consumers?

    At 9:30am to 10:30am, Saturday 12th March

  • Disrupted, Again: The Next Chapter in News

    by Matt Williams

    The way we find and read the news continues to change. Just as the web disrupted print media in the last decade, now social networks, news aggregators (like Digg), and innovations from startups are once again disrupting how online news is consumed. An order of magnitude more content is produced today than in years past and rapid innovation continues to change the way that news is found and read. What are some of the driving forces behind how news is created, discovered and consumed? How is the social graph and the interest graph changing the way we find and read the news? How will a culture of citizen journalism affect what we read and who we trust? In this session, we explore these issues through the lens of content creators, aggregators, advertisers and venture capitalists, and offer a perspective on how the news landscape will dramatically change in the next five years.

    At 12:30pm to 1:30pm, Monday 14th March

    In Capitol View Terrace, Sheraton Austin Hotel at the Capitol
