National newspapers like the Tribune Company and New York Times are in disarray. Some newspapers have stopped publishing altogether. Amidst the chaos, emerging technologies of social, mobile and location are helping reshape the delivery, format and even the business models. Publishers are also eager to capture the conversation and sense of community that permeate services like Facebook and Twitter. And the rise of the Kindle platform and the iPhone have established new platforms for delivering the e-news. A flurry of experimentation is underway along with several interesting new startups like Politico, True/Slant and Talking Points Memo making bets on big opportunities in this new media landscape. Come join the Emerging Technology Forum on October 27 for a provocative discussion as experts explore the technology, innovation and new social order of newspapers taking shape.
