The Innovations in Journalism Expo is a unique, one-day event showcasing cutting-edge work that combines journalism, technology, new business models, philanthropy and advocacy. Come and participate in lively discussions that will bring truly fresh perspectives and new ideas to the table regarding the "future of journalism."

Featured panelists include Geneva Overholser ("On Behalf of Journalism: A Manifesto for Change"), Jon Funabiki (SFSU professor, former Ford Foundation officer), David Talbot (Salon.com founder), Reese Erlich (international print and radio freelancer), David Olmos (former Los Angeles Times health editor) and many more.


The Expo is produced and sponsored by the Society of Professional Journalists-Northern California and Independent Arts & Media, in conjunction with NewsTools2008/Journalism That Matters-Silicon Valley (April 30-May 2 @ Yahoo) and the Maynard Institute for Journalism Education.


With the abundance of ideas and energy that will erupt April 30-May 2 at NewsTools2008/Journalism That Matters (http://newshare.typepad.com/jtm2008sv/ ), it's opportune to stage an exposition on May 3 showcasing the best of those new ideas and channeling that energy into productive, focused networking, community building and resource exchange.
