Original conference announcement text
A democratic society cannot exist without a vibrant news media.
But corporate social networks are now threatening the existence of the independent press.
Many technologists are working to create new grassroots communication platforms that could ultimately replace those networks.
Many journalists and their news outlets are looking for ways to break free of those networks.
It’s time to bring those two movements together.
And figure out what comes next.
