Digital Journalism Social Hour. It was a regular gathering of bloggers, podcasters, and traditional journalists organized by Abraham Hyatt, former managing editor of Oregon Business Magazine and now production editor at ReadWriteWeb.

It was a regular gathering that sprung out of the inaugural Digital Journalism Camp—an unconference for  bloggers, podcasters, and traditional journalists—organized by Abraham Hyatt, former managing editor of Oregon Business Magazine and now production editor at ReadWriteWeb.

Well, the event took a bit of hiatus. And it was sorely missed. But now—with the help of Betsy Richter of Redoing Media—it’s back. Read More

We Make the Media is a team of veteran journalists who have a vested interest in seeing journalism continue to persevere and survive—despite what may be happening in the world of media.

Now, there may be an organization to help. Introducing We Make the Media. Read More

Digital Journalism Camp: Reporters, bloggers, podcasters gather to explore the evolution of journalism

What if we could get traditional reporters and bloggers all journalists in their own right in the same room to discuss the issue? Now, we can on August 1 with Portland’s Digital Journalism Camp.

If you spend any time reading news online, you’ve no doubt encountered a wealth of discussion on the death of traditional print and broadcast media and how this rapidly accelerating demise is affecting the world of professional reporters. Sometimes it’s a “the time has come” discussion, sometimes it’s a “blogs are to blame” quip, sometimes it’s “Craigslist has undercut our cash cow.”
