  2. Editorial standards for a digital age

    Quality journalism still matters, but in the digital age how can media organisations stay relevant and build audience while still protecting a commitment to accuracy, fairness, and independence? In the digital age, one of the most complex challenges for media outlets is how to re-shape the editorial responsibilities of journalism itself. Which journalistic standards, many devised last century, still fit in the digital age? And which standards form the basis of a new type of journalism being pioneered by hybrid news sites that have come of age in the digital era? A third form of journalism is emerging; one that combines the best of legacy standards and the new approaches of digital natives. Such a hybrid form requires a more streamlined set of editorial standards that fit the internet era. Focusing on the key editorial standards of accuracy, independence, and impartiality, this session highlights ways that news outlets are re-shaping their editorial standards and using digital tools to build editorial integrity.

  4. Steven Johnson, author of The Invention of Air: Interview on The Sound of Young America

    Steven Berlin Johnson is a writer and entrepreneur who writes on the history of ideas. His books have included Everything Bad is Good for You, which suggested that contemporary popular culture is more challenging to the mind than it’s accused of being, and The Ghost Map: The Story of London’s Most Terrifying Epidemic—and How It Changed Science, Cities, and the Modern World, which tracked the spread of cholera in London in the mid-19th century as a way to understand the networked modern city. His newest book, The Invention of Air: A Story of Science, Faith, Revolution and the Birth of America tracks the life of the 18th century writer and scientist Joseph Priestley, and how his story can help us learn about the growth and development of ideas. Johnson also created the news discussion site plastic.com and the hyper-local site outside.in.
