Technology is changing the way media works in all kinds of ways that go far beyond fake news. Tech has increased the number of voices we hear in the news, and proliferated the ways in which that news it available to us. This is not your mother’s media.
In this reality, General Assembly is hosting a panel discussion on data and the future of journalism. Scheduled for the evening of Wednesday, March 15, the discussion will take on “where the ever-changing media industry is headed” and what “the future of media and all its opportunities will look like.”
To discuss these challenging questions GA has lined up a panel of knowledgeable industry figures including Karam Singh Sethi, a storyteller at Booz Allen Hamilton; Meghan Hoyer, a data journalist at the Associated Press; Aaron Williams, a reporter at the Washington Post; and Kate Rabinowitz, founder of DataLensDC.
As evidenced in these very pages we’re big fans of everything Rabinowitz does relating to the telling of data-fueled D.C. stories.
