An Intro to My Session
Newslibbers, please forgive the shameless plug, but I wanted to give an introduction to my session next week at SLA. Somehow, the title got a little muddled, so it reads as "News Researchers: News Research in the Newsroom," which could only have been envisioned by the Department of Redundancy Department. At 7:30 a.m., perhaps a snappier title would be better.
What I'm hoping for is a conversation, which requires two things: an audience, and an idea of what I'm talking about. So here it is: for the past year I've been writing a series of essays about using technology to improve reporting and research in the newsroom. Next week, I'll be showing some examples of the stuff I've written about and explaining how researchers can implement them in their newsrooms. Hope to see you there -- your questions and comments are welcomed.
