ONA San Diego: Technology as an equalizer in journalism?

 An ONA Local event, hosted by ONA San Diego

We know it’s been a while, but we’re ready and excited for our next meet-up event!

Victor Hernandez, News Futurist with CNN Worldwide, will be joining us for a conversation about the current and future role of technology in the news cycle.

With the rise of citizen journalists, bloggers, social media and new media, technology has created a space for just about anyone to contribute to the creation of news – and at a much faster pace. Some argue it’s become the great equalizer for available resources in the arena of news.

But do the growing trends of “click-bait” and the sensationalization of headlines encouraged by technology threaten the quality of journalism?

In this role, Hernandez is charged with shaping critical vision and strategies around emerging technologies against CNN’s journalistic objectives and opportunities, giving him a unique perspective on the subject.

We’re also inviting the SD Bloggers MeetUp Group and journalists from around San Diego for a lively dialogue including a variety of perspectives and experiences.

Our goal is to create a space for San Diego journalists, bloggers, social media professionals, and anyone interested in journalism to come together and discuss these issues – and of course to meet new people!

Join us on Wednesday August 6th at Co-Merge Work Space (downtown) to join the conversation.
