Shaping the Web Future of the Newspaper

Track: BoFs (Birds of a Feather)
Date: Wednesday, July 25
Time: 8:30pm - 9:30pm
Location: E143-144

Moderator: Jacob Harris, Senior Software Architect, New York Times Digital

We're living in an interesting time for newspapers. Once thriving print circulations are on the decline, yet readership on the web is booming. However, revenue from the web and advertising pales in comparison to the traditional printed paper. Everybody agrees that the future of newspapers is on the web, yet getting there is the hard part, especially creating a new online news source that draws on the unique strengths of the Web and is not just the print paper in another format. If you have an interest in such things and want to discuss what features would make you read the new again, come talk with us.
