Join ONA Philly to meet other people interested in online journalism, and learn about Philadelphia Media Network’s recent tablet initiative, and we’ll drink free beer. It’s a perfect night, really.
Join us at the home of the Inquirer, Daily News and Philly.com for a casual get-together Nov. 2 at 6 p.m. Around 6:45 or 7 p.m., we’ll hush up for half an hour and hear from some of the people responsible for PMN’s much-discussed tablet launch, including CEO Greg Osberg and Philly.com editor Wendy Warren. They’ll give us some insight into the thinking behind it, the execution, and what other journalists can learn from the initiative. We’ll stay until everyone gets tired or 9 p.m., whichever comes first.
Writers, editors, photographers, producers, technologists, students and all with an interest in the production of news for digital presentation are invited!
RSVP is required. For more details and to RSVP head to Meetup.com.
Questions? You can follow co-organizers Daniel Victor, Amy Fiscus and Christopher Wink on Twitter. We encourage you to join the ONA Philly Facebook group, where we post job openings and other events in the city that might interest online journalists. And please help us spread the word to others (for those on Twitter, we’ll use the #ONAPhilly hashtag).
Also, please help us grow! We need sponsors to help offset the costs of hosting, as that free beer isn’t really free, and we need venues to host future events (often news organizations that would like to discuss a recent project, but we’re open to anything). Please get in touch with the organizers if you’re interested.
