Who: Journalists, entrepreneurs, programmers, bloggers, technologists, educators, developers, designers, funders, social entrepreneurs, community activists, community builders, and others who care about telling stories in communities.
Where: University of North Carolina-Greensboro
Why: To interrupt and disrupt the status quo and remake a new media ecology that is inclusive of diverse voices.
When: June 2-5, 2011
At this three-day event, we will conceive, design and pitch ideas for the next news and information businesses, tools, and services that amplify diverse voices and strengthen the role of communities in shaping their stories.
The gathering serves as a sandbox in which professionals ranging from programmers to journalists can initiate entrepreneurial journalism ventures. At the same time, regional participants will incubate new ideas to re-invigorate the news ecology in the Piedmont Triad region of North Carolina. The event is designed around result-driven conversations that spark collaboration and innovations.
