2007 is the year of the online newspaper in the UK. The Times Online, Telegraph and Mirror have all re-launched, the Daily Mail has created a new platform, and the Guardian and the FT are being re-developed. The scale and scope of the impact represented by the Internet have been felt across newspapers: in reporting and editing; debate and reader created material; the rise of meta publications and story syndication; alienation of younger audiences and general distrust; and increasing costs and decreasing revenues. The newspaper industry is looking like a victim of its self-reported fears about the impact of the Internet. What can we learn from best practice in research, design, technology, journalism, editorial and business strategy about how to address these major developments and deliver the best on- and offline newspapers for real people.
Information on panelists can be found on the Future Media site, along with biographies, booking information, and background reading for event preparation. You can flag Attending here, but formal booking is necessary and can be done done via the site.
