ONA NC Triangle events
ONA just wrapped up its annual conference in Atlanta, and by all accounts, it was fantastic. Of course, not all of us had the opportunity to attend. Fortunately, some of our members were there, and they plan to share what they learned at our next ONA NC Triangle Meetup! Come down to McClatchy Interactive and hear from Suzanne Levinson, Ariella Monti and others as they report back to us on new developments in news and technology. Snacks will be served.
You are invited to join us for the first meeting of the new local chapter of Online News Association (ONA).
Our first program will feature John Clark, director of the Reese Felts Digital News Lab at the University of North Carolina’s School of Journalism and Mass Communications. He and his students produced a mobile website this summer — whichwaync.com — focusing on North Carolina politics. They created an immersive interactive guide to campaign finance that would take full advantage of mobile browsing—that is to say, users on touch screen devices can swipe and tap their way, bit by bit, through the whole package. Find out how they did it — and the importance of thinking digitally first.
The meeting will be hosted by The News & Observer at 215 S. McDowell Street, Raleigh, NC 27601 in the McDaniels Conference room on Wednesday, Sept. 12 from 7-9 p.m. Free parking will be available on site in the company lot at the corner of Martin and Hargett Streets (right next to the N&O building). After you park, enter the building and someone will get you to the conference room. Light refreshments will be served.
