We caught up with our speaker Lyndsey Jones to find out more about how the Financial Times is preparing its reporters for the newsroom of the 2020s.
We’re delighted to announce Shorthand, a platform for the creation of interactive storytelling, as the latest sponsor of Journalism.co.uk’s digital journalism conference news:rewired.
Shorthand, which aims to simplify the process of producing full-impact multimedia stories, is working on building a public tool which is “currently in private beta”. It has, however, already worked with a number of news outlets, including first the Guardian and just this month ESPN.co.uk for their end-of-year look back at key sporting moments.
At news:rewired Ben Fogarty, executive manager of Shorthand, will take part in a workshop looking at how journalists can produce immersive stories on digital platforms.
The event agenda is available online, and tickets are still on sale for either £130 +VAT for conference-only, or £220 +VAT for news:rewired+, which includes the conference and a three-hour practical workshop the following day.
Location-specific content might be the next big thing in journalism, Mathew Ingram, senior writer for GigaOm told the final session of the news:rewired conference in London today.
