From Technically Philly:
“The eighth annual Barcamp News Innovation returns to talk news process and editorial process. Rather than the spring, this year we’re hosting the one-day unconference Saturday, Oct. 15 in the newly renovated Temple University Annenberg Hall.
More than 150 people attended last year, including representatives from the New York Times, Washington Post, NBC Nightly News, Business Insider, Google, Yahoo, Philadelphia Inquirer, Mozilla, Vox Media and many more. There were big consumer brands and B2B publishers and freelancers and editors and just about anyone a part of sharing information with communities.
It’s the biggest annual celebration of publishers, journalists, editors and content creators in Philadelphia. We want content strategists, podcasters and other media specialists to join us.”
This year the organizers have moved the event from the springtime to the fall. October 15th is the date. An entire Saturday filled with great knowledge-sharing and cross-cultural (i.e. journalism and internetters) exchange. I think I’ve been in attendance every year since its inception. Go the BCNI Philly website to register now. It’s like, $15. Total bargain. Usually includes bagels and coffee and lunch… and a lot of DOPE KNOWLEDGE. You should come.
