Over the course of the past year, a number of online and mobile-centric news outlets have experimented with unique approaches to tracking stories online — approaches that challenge traditional notions of “the beat” and “the article”. What opportunities, beyond live blogging and tweeting, does the digital age offer journalists attempting to track evolving narratives and ideas?
Join the Online News Association’s New York Group on October 9th for a conversation with three innovative newsmakers whose experiments in story tracking are leading the trend:
Gideon Lichfield, Global News Editor, Quartz (read his thoughts on organizing newsrooms around “obsessions” rather than beats) — @glichfield
Daniel Bentley, Contributing Editor, Circa (learn about the Circa app here and here) — @djbentley
Chris Dannen, Editor, Co.Labs (See Co.Labs’ story tracking experiments) — @chrisdannen
Moderator: Anjali Mullany, News Editor, Fast Company Digital — @anjalimullany
Doors will open at 6pm; the discussion will begin at 6:30pm.
