(903) Physical News

A session at Mozilla Festival 2012

Saturday 10th November, 2012

2:00pm to 5:00pm (GMT)

Digital tech has provided thousands of new ways to share journalism on hundreds of different screens. This workshop is for active citizens who want to build or experiment with physical platforms and digital tools for finding original stories and telling them in new and interesting ways.

From Interactive Newsprint to Drone Journalism and everything in between we’ll be exploring the new frontiers of story creation and storytelling - where digital gets physical.

Help us design a new user interface that enables community news reporters to create digital interactive content for paper we can connect to the internet. Work out a way of enabling Journalism Drones to collect data that’s not just video whilst they’re in flight. Find a way of using technology to validate and corroborate stories appearing on the web in the real world so we know they’re not just elaborate hoaxes. Or pitch up with your own thoughts about the best way to make digital journalism physical.
