27 Jan What can we learn from media startups? Tales from two tech sites
Media startups are defining new paths in journalism by tackling new business models, experimenting with content, and generally just making their own rules. Much of this experimentation has taken place at sites like Techcrunch, GigaOmand others covering the technology industry, and theyâ€™re learning lessons that can apply to the rest of the media world.
Join us Tuesday, Jan. 31 at 7 p.m. atÂ Jillian’s SeattleÂ forÂ this month’s ONA & SPJ #NewsNext meetup as we welcome representatives from a pair of Seattle-based tech news startups: GeekWire chief business officer Rebecca Lovell and Xconomy senior editor Curt Woodward. Theyâ€™ll join product and brand strategy consultant Frank Catalano, also a GeekWire guest columnist, to talk about emerging business models, technology and media, and the opportunities, challenges and development of startups.
Up for mingling with fellow media folk and learning from colleagues in the tech news space? RSVP today!
This is the sixth in a series of #NewsNext meetups, where we’re talking to interesting locals working in the digital space. We bring together writers, editors, photographers, producers, developers, designers, engineers and anyone else with an interest in the production of news.
The group meets at Jillianâ€™s on Westlake, which offers a cash bar and some great space for discussion and networking.
