Thanks to the kindness of Daylife, I, Chris, have been sitting next to Jeff Jarvis all day in their Soho loft.
Jeff always impresses me with his energy. He types or talks or brainstorms non-stop. On his way out he let me know that the The Networked Journalism Summit has just been announced.
The Summit, according to Jeff will skip MSM bashing in favor of sorting out what’s working from the international to the hyper-local level.
"The premise of all this is that even as journalistic organizations may shrink, along with their revenue bases, journalism itself can and must expand and it will do that through collaborative work. The internet makes that collaboration possible and we’ve barely begun to explore the opportunities it affords."
The event will be held on Oct. 10 at the City University of New York Graduate School of Journalism, thanks to a grant from the MacArthur Foundation.
We’re looking forward to it.
