By on September 14, 2016

Video, live blogs and more resources from ONA16

There’s a lot planned at ONA16 this week, but you don’t need to be in Denver to find resources, inspiration or a job. From our opening keynote with Facebook’s Fidji Simo on Thursday to the Online Journalism Awards closing out the conference on Saturday night, you can stream presentations by going to the ONA16 schedule and clicking on sessions with a screen icon. We’re also live-blogging sessions and recording audio of sessions, and you can find those resources on the session pages you access through the schedule as well. Please note that all times on the schedule are listed in local time and Denver is on Mountain Time (MT).
