Technology influences all industries, including the media and journalism industry we’re a part of. Fun fact: The first event Technical.ly 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.

Get tickets

Technologists, founders and anyone comfortable with the web (i.e., not just journalists) interested in how communities can be better informed news products are all welcome. This year’s keynote speaker is Lauren Rabaino, the director of editorial products at Vox Media.

Like any unconference, most of the day’s sessions are created and planned day-of, in between networking and idea swapping. But we usually curate a few pre-planned sessions to give the day some structure. Here is what’s on tap:
