Put the date in your diary: Thursday 14 January, 2010

“There has never been a more exciting time to be a journalist,” said Channel 4 news presenter Jon Snow earlier this year.

It’s fair to say there’s never been a more challenging time either, as economic, social and technological developments irreversibly change the shape of the newsroom and the face of the media landscape.

Everyone is welcome, whether from one-person media enterprises to large news organisations.
