Technology influences all industries, including the media and journalism industry we’re a part of. Fun fact: The first event ever organized was Barcamp News Innovation.

This Saturday, we’ll host our seventh-annual daylong unconference on the future of news — and you should be there. Again, we’re hosted at Temple University by our title sponsor and organizing partner, the Center for Public Interest Journalism. Tickets are $15 and come with breakfast, lunch, a happy hour and a day of programming on media trends.
