BarCamp NewsInnovation Chicago
Saturday, February 21, 2009 from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM (CST)
Join this group for a one-day un-conference to experience the creativity and energy that occurs when technologist, programmers, web developers, designers, hackers and information architects teams to do cool stuff with journliasts, entrepreneurs, tech business dudes, students, professors and others with interest in news and information.
This ad hoc event will be a place to not only talk about how technology is influencing journalism, but participants will be given the opportunity to brainstorm an idea and hack it out by the end of the afternoon.
The idea behind BarCamp NewsInnovation is to get energetic, tech-savvy, open-minded individuals who embrace the chaos in the media industry because the ability to do really cool things still exists.
The nature of a barcamp is to share ideas, expand thinking and creativity and prototype or demonstrate something, and the same will be true for BarCamp NewsInnovation.
