2011 Conference

Digital Journalism Camp Portland is back! On May 14, 2011, journalists, bloggers, and members of the media and tech communities from across the Pacific Northwest will gather in downtown Portland to explore the future of online journalism.

Mark Luckie, founder of 10000words.net and the national innovations editor for The Washington Post is our keynote. Last year Nieman Journalism Lab described Luckie as a journalist who “embodies the kind of learn-it-yourself/do-it-yourself ethos that is increasingly common — and even essential — in digital journalism: gather the tools you need, build a community, follow your own interests and passions and quirks.”

Digital Journalism Camp is about spending the day with the people who are actively changing journalism. You’re going to learn from — and share with — the people who have found solutions to the challenges you face, whether you’re a beat reporter, a blogger or a publisher.

Digital Journalism Camp 2011.
Cost: Free.
May 14, 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
851 SW 6th Ave, Suite 1600 Portland.
Contact: abraham@journopdx.com.

Unconference Space

Session Panelists/Presenter
All Day Unconference format If you’ve never been to an unconference, it’s simple: Anyone can pick the topic, anyone can lead the session. Are we missing a panel on an important issue? On the day of the conference, sign up to lead a session it. Was a session with a good presenter too short? That happened at the first Digital Journalism Camp, so people grabbed the presenter and did their own session that went deeper into the topic.
