Journalism 360 showcase at VR World

If you’re in New York City, head over to VR World where immersive storytelling pieces curated by Journalism 360 are on view through Aug. 31. The exhibit includes projects by the 2017 Journalism 360 Challenge winners, several of which debuted in the space during the Demo Night ahead of the inaugural Journalism 360 Unconference — the only conference covering the intersection of immersive storytelling and journalism (follow @Journalism_360 and #journalism360 on Twitter for highlights!).

There’s a lot of conventional wisdom out there about quitting — namely, that you shouldn’t do it. MJ Bear Fellow Kelly Moffit disagrees, and interviewed WhereBy.Us co-founder and COO Rebekah Monson to get her experienced take on the subject. Read their Q&A.
