Festival2011/SMS and Journalism
We've seen the power of SMS texting to raise money for tsunami victims, locate earthquake victims and rally people around candidates and causes. Can these powers be used by journalism? How? What might we build? Are there lessons from commerce? Medicine? Art? We'll explore and share ideas in a chat led by John Keefe, senior editor for data news at WNYC, New York Public Radio, which has been experimenting with SMS on several projects.
1) Interest in journalism, 2) Curiosity or understanding of texting habits, 3) Have sent an SMS text. 4) Any of the above.
