Hacking the org

A session at Hacks/Hackers BA Media Party 2014

Thursday 28th August, 2014

4:15pm to 7:00pm (CMT)

Some conceptual models, some drawings, some ideas. Maybe a few manifestos! We can put them up on github for folks to discuss.So many media experiences we have today are a reflection of the media company themselves - how they're organized, how they collaborate, how they use the digital medium, how they make money. Budgets and org charts are design documents! Most of these organizational models have been inherited from the traditions of print, television and radio. If we could start from scratch and design an organizational model for the digital medium, one that scale and evolve - what would that look like. How would we make it more diverse? How would we design it to evolve at the pace of new technology? How would we create organizations that allow us to sustain our visions and missions in journalism?
Bring your experience working in traditional media companies, technology focused startups, design firms, etc. Folks that have started and grown companies - please come and share your stories. Folks that work in big organizations designed around older news mediums, we want to capture that wisdom and your ideas for change.
