"Between the advent of the printing press and the rise of the Internet, more than 500 years passed without another technological advancement that significantly empowered the voice of the people and changed the nature of journalism. Now, with the rise of blogs, digital video and citizen journalists, computing technologies continue to usher in monumental change - affecting the field of journalism right down to its core. Who’s ready for this? How is the field adapting? And what are the implications for journalistic integrity? We plan to find out.

This event is a first-of-its-kind meeting to bring together up-and-coming journalists, established news-hounds, acclaimed academics, technology and media executives, Internet influencers and many others to discuss how new computing technologies will shape and reshape the news business for generations to come."
