Journalism has changed. Thanks to the Internet, we can now find hundreds of articles, about a single topic, from multiple sources, at the push of a button.

Journalism continues to change, as aggregators and community based sites combine traditional reporting with the dialogue that we share among ourselves, online, on the streets and within our neighborhoods.  

We will adapt and overcome as journalists, as dialogue makers and as those who rely on news and information, adequate enough to help us make daily decisions in a modern democracy.

On April 30, Independent Arts & Media, the University of San Francisco, The G.W Williams Center for Independent Journalism and the Society for Professional Journalists will present the third annual Journalism Innovations Conference (JI-3).  Over a period of three days, we will gather on the verdant campus of USF to meet, discuss, commiserate, consider and innovate.  

JI-3 will not be an exercise of self-congratulations for incorporating Twitter into a distribution method.  Nor will it be a series of talking heads reiterating what we already know about modern journalism. This conference is designed to recognize the diversity within the field, to encourage exchange, and to learn from different perspectives.  Our workshops will address new trends, new ways of doing business, and what it now takes to stay in the news business with workshops, panels, and plenary discussions.  

If you are interested in journalism, news, information or community based dialogue, we invite you to join us beginning April 30. You need not be a professional journalist to attend.  Online registration is now open, with self-identified fees or a sliding scale.  No one will be turned away for inability to pay.  Visit the Journalism Innovations website for a schedule of events and activities

Journalism has changed, but the need for reliable information has not.  Join us to help discover how we will continue to meet that need, which is so vital to our democracy.
