Care about how journalism gets done, news gets told and communities are informed?
Then you ought to join the 150 media leaders who will be at Temple University on Saturday for the eighth annual Barcamp News Innovation, an annual unconference we at Technically Media organize with Temple’s School of Media Communications.
