Our next digital journalism conference news:rewired will take place on Thursday 20 February, and once again we will be liveblogging the sessions and presentations shared throughout the day.
We’re pleased to announce ScribbleLive as the event’s liveblogging sponsor. As a result, the conference livebloggers will be using Scribble’s real-time reporting platform to share the latest inspired advice and practical tips from the event. The technology will also enable them to view and curate conversations around the event hashtag #newsrw.
Tickets to the one-day conference, which is being held at MSN UK’s offices in Victoria, London, are available for just £130 +VAT.
There are also news:rewired+ tickets available for just £220 +VAT, which offer delegates access to both the one-day conference on Thursday 20 February, and a three-hour workshop the following day, Friday 21 February. Delegates can choose one of three hands-on workshops to attend: web-native video, data visualisation or searching social and verification.
Liveblogging platform ScribbleLive is to open up its syndication marketplace to allow freelancers to get paid for creating content for its clients.
ScribbleLive founder Michael De Monte (pictured) said the syndication marketplace, which will launch next year, will allow individuals who sign up to its freelancers’ plan to make money when they are covering or talking about live events online.
ScribbleLive already has a syndication marketplace for large organisations like Thomson Reuters and they plan to extend this service to other paying subscribers.
Speaking at news:rewired, De Monte said the product would help media organisations to cover breaking news from all over the world.
“You can’t be every place, every time,” he said. “Hopefully there will be a journalist producing that content and it can go into system.”
For those who can’t make it along to news:rewired tomorrow, fear not. We’ll have liveblogging from Wannabe Hacks, video footage from BBC College of Journalism and blogging from freelance journalist Rosie Niven
