Join the Symbolia Magazine team and Hacks/Hackers Chicago to celebrate the launch of a home-grown news venture at Matilda’s on Monday December 10th, 6:30 p.m.
Symbolia is a tablet-based magazine that merges comic books, illustration, and in-depth journalism. Read about Symbolia in the Chicago Tribune, The National, and the Columbia Journalism Review.
You’ll get to see Symbolia in action, learn how interactive illustrated journalism is produced, chat with cofounders Erin Polgreen and Joyce Rice, and, most importantly, celebrate with food and drink!
Good times will be had. All are welcome–but space is limited, so RSVP today.
Special thanks to the Hacks/Hackers Chicago team for hosting this event.
More about Symbolia: The Tablet Magazine of Illustrated Journalism
Founded in Chicago, Symbolia is an eye-popping, jaw-dropping tablet magazine that merges in-depth journalism, classic comics illustration, & good, old-fashioned storytelling with interactive digital media.
Each issue is packed with ground-breaking, insightful stories by world-class illustrators and journalists, plus stunning info-graphics, video reports, exclusive audio, and more.
We’re turning the news into art, and art into news.
Baybayan is part of a massive labor force that handles “content moderation”—the removal of offensive material—for US social-networking sites. As social media connects more people more intimately than ever before, companies have been confronted with the Grandma Problem: Now that grandparents routinely use services like Facebook to connect with their kids and grandkids, they are potentially exposed to the Internet’s panoply of jerks, racists, creeps, criminals, and bullies. They won’t continue to log on if they find their family photos sandwiched between a gruesome Russian highway accident and a hardcore porn video.
