Just a quick post to say I’ll be heading to Chicago at the end of September for the ONA conference, where Laura Amico, Bill Adair, Miguel Paz and I will be on a panel discussing structured journalism.
We’ll talk about Homicide Watch, Politifact, Poderopedia and Connected China, of course, but what we really want to do is discuss more broadly ways to embed the ideas of structured journalism into more newsrooms, the advantages and challenges that brings, and hopefully brainstorm other areas of coverage where this approach might be helpful. We promise no long presentations – I’m spending loads of time cutting down a short intro – lots of interaction, and we’re hoping we’ll have an involved and engaged audience bringing lots of ideas, questions and answers.
Please show up if you can – it’s on Saturday afternoon, September 27, 2.30 pm, in Chicago Ballroom IX. (The hashtag is #structuredjourn.)
