Silicon Valley Watcher - Former FT journalist Tom Foremski reporting from the intersection of technology and media

Innovation Journalism Conference At Stanford

Posted by Tom Foremski - May 9, 2007

I'll be one of the speakers at the Fourth Conference on Innovation Journalism at Stanford University May 21-23. It is free, preregistration recommended.

David Nordfors, program leader Innovation Journalism at Stanford University and colleagues, have organized this conference. It looks at how media is reporting on innovation, with lots of input from reporters and editors around the world.

Also at the conference, DO NOT MISS THIS KEYNOTE!!!:

DOUGLAS ENGELBART/ Introduced by JOHN MARKOFF: Augmenting the collective IQ of writers and readers.
Doug Engelbart is known as the father of the concept of the personal computer, and inventor of the computer mouse. He is a proponent of the development and use of computers and networks to build collective intelligence that can solve the world's problems. (read more in Wikipedia)
John Markoff is a senior writer for The New York Times. (read bio )

Excellent piece on Doug Engelbart by Ross Mayfield

Ross Mayfield, CEO of SocialText, points me to his post on Doug Engelbart, and it's an excellent piece of work. This is how blogging should be done, this should be used as a textbook example of fine blogging. http://ross.typepad.com/blog/2005/06/doug_englebart_.html...
