It’s that time of year again. The sun is starting to peek out a little more often. The breeze feels a little warmer. And the camps are beginning to get going again.
That’s right. It’s time for Digital Journalism Camp, Portland. On May 14, the premier event for journalists, bloggers, reporters, podcasters, newscasters, and writers to all get in the same room, get all unconferencey, and work through the issues facing folks creating content on the Web today.
Digital Journalism Camp is about spending the day with the people who are actively changing journalism. You’re going to learn from — and share with — the people who have found solutions to the challenges you face, whether you’re a beat reporter, a blogger or a publisher.
Sounds awesome right? Damn straight. So quit sitting there and get on it.
What’s that? You need more. Fine. Greedy. Here you go.
Mark Luckie, founder of 10000words.net and the national innovations editor for The Washington Post is our keynote. Last year Nieman Journalism Lab described Luckie as a journalist who “embodies the kind of learn-it-yourself/do-it-yourself ethos that is increasingly common—and even essential—in digital journalism: gather the tools you need, build a community, follow your own interests and passions and quirks.”
Cool hunh? And what if—wait for it—I told you it was free. As in beer. Free free free. In both an unconference sense and a financial one.
That’s a smart decision you just made there. No. Not that one. The one to head on over and get registered for Digital Journalism Camp.
Still not convinced? Well, I’ve done all I can do. You’re going to have to head over to the Digital Journalism Portland site for all the details on Digital Journalism Camp.
