KJF News: Workshops at the University of Melbourne

September 24, 2010

Over the last 9 months we have been working on the understanding of new journalism in the era of mobile technologies and the wed 2.0. Many questions have come across this journey and a big effort has been made to tackle these issues. Far from the scenario we want to reach we have been constantly sharing the KJF Initiative with people in the media, students, professors and software developers.

Thanks to the support of the School of Culture and Communication at the University of Melbourne and Professor Nikos Papastergiadis, we have started with the design of a workshop series program. The idea is to create a team focused on specific goals that can strengthen the purpose of this project.

Our aim it to congregate software developers, journalists and academics to foster compelling ideas that can make the KJF Initiative an interesting, sophisticated, well structured and altruist approach to the new era of news.

This is another small step towards the real internet revolution we are claiming for. We want to create a group that works collectively to create new technology available for bloggers and independent media outlets. We want to know what journalists think about this idea, whether they are independent or work for mainstream media organizations. We want to encourage academic research regarding the relationship between news and the philosophy behind the web 2.0.
