Rounding It Up
My IJ-7 roundtable is moving along nicely. The conference is still a few months away, but things are shaping up. For my roundtable--Choosing What To Cover in Innovation Journalism: How Do You Know What I Didn't Write?--I am glad to announce the following, confirmed participants: Owen Thomas, Executive Editor at VentureBeat, Theodore Glasser, Professor of Communication, Stanford University, Chris Dale, YouTube PR and Donna Sokolsky Burke, SparkPR.
I am happy to see people are responding to the topic at hand, and are eager to participate. Listening to all the other Fellows' roundtable suggestions (and their suggestions for top InJo stories) today at Stanford, I think IJ-7 will turn into a fantastic conference. For my part, the hosting newsroom (VentureBeat) has proved to be an invaluable resource as far as connections and brainstorming are concerned.
All in all, things look very promising and the Spring months are rolling along at a swift pace. June is still a couple of months away, and this time will give each of us time to really focus on what we are trying to accomplish with the conference: further examination and development of innovation journalism.
