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.

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.

Speakers from ScribbleLive, the Huffington Post, n0tice and The Washington Post told the news:rewired conference how journalists are now curating the news.
This session of news:rewired looked at the growing role of the journalist as a manager of information from the social web and beyond. Our speakers shared some key skills, tools and techniques for effective curation across different forms of digital news delivery, from the liveblog to innovative collections of content shared on social media.
Our speakers were Cory Haik, executive producer for digital news, The Washington Post; Matt McAlister, lead on the Guardian’s n0tice platform; Michael Rundle, technology editor, Huffington Post UK; and Michael De Monte, founder and chief executive, ScribbleLive.

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.”
With only two weeks left until news:rewired – beyond the story we are happy to announce live journalism Platform ScribbleLive as gold sponsor for the event.
