We are pleased to announce David Ho, editor for mobile, tablets and emerging technology at The Wall Street Journal, as the keynote speaker for our news:rewired conference on Wednesday 23 July.

Ho will focus on “how news outlets and reporters can embrace the mobile revolution”, as well as considering “what comes beyond mobile and how emerging technologies will affect news and storytelling”.

We recently reported on how the Wall Street Journal approaches innovation, and Ho has been heavily involved in the steering of WSJ’s mobile strategy,
including leadership of the outlet’s mobile editorial team and in his role as founding editor and co-creator of the outlet’s iPad app and tablet edition.

In an additional workshop, later in the day at news:rewired, Ho will also highlight useful tools and apps for journalists interested in expanding their mobile toolbox.

The digital journalism conference will be held at MSN UK’s offices in Victoria, London, and will offer a range of sessions, including workshops and topical discussions, for those interested in the latest developments in digital journalism.

The conference agenda features sessions offering practical tips and techniques on using Reddit as a journalist, boosting engagement with online reporting, harnessing private social networks, searching the web, getting to grips with spreadsheets – and much more.

Speakers include digital journalists from the BBC, the Telegraph, Financial Times, BuzzFeed and Reddit.
