Key topics:




The conference includes keynotes, presentations and workshops. We have a multi-stakeholder approach, welcoming all types of scholars and professionals to take part in a discussion on the role of journalism in the innovation economy. The participants in this conference come from all over the world, due to the international character of the program.

A large part of the conference will be organized by the Innovation Journalism Fellows, who begin their Fellowships at Stanford in Feb 2010. The Fellows this year c

JTM - Journalism That Matters

JOURNALISM THAT MATTERS hosts conversations about the emerging news ecology among the diverse ecosystem of journalism – reporters, editors, publishers, videographers, photographers, media educators, reformers, volunteer journalists, and audience; from print, broadcast, and online media, both mainstream and entrepreneurial.

It is a community of media innovators and stakeholders that blazes paths and builds bridges to a new news ecology. We convene, connect, and inspire the diverse, engaged citizens who are molding and leading the media of tomorrow.

Using the un-conference format, we will explore What do we know and what do we want to know at the intersection of journalism and innovation?

Conference sessions could explore questions such as: Given the state of the industry, WHAT’s possible now? WHO are the new journalists? HOW are stories chosen? HOW are they told? WHAT kind of change is productive? WHO can the public trust? WHAT is the role of journalism in connecting people and community? WHERE can editors find qualified contributors and information with increasingly diminished budgets? WHAT new technological sources are reliable? WHERE is the new newsroom? WHEN are beat blogs, twittering and social networks best utilized? WHY is transparency so important? HOW do we maintain transparency and accountability while protecting sources?
