International Symposium in Online Journalism

Well, I'm back in Austin, attending the International Symposium in Online Journalism at my alma mater The University of Texas at Austin. This symposium has been going on since 1999 and I have attended each one. It has grown to be a very informative and insightful event, with both professionals on panels and academics presenting research papers. Citizen journalism is a big focus this year.

And, it looks as though the conference has grown so much that next year, it will be moving to a bigger venue.

Robert Picard of the Shorenstein Center at Harvard is about to give the Keynote Address.

More to come...

yeah, this year's symposium was definitely better than last, I felt I took away a lot.

I took pages of notes but haven't typed any of them up yet, I'll let you know if I do.
