This year's South by South West Interactive (SxSWi) indicates he's not the only one thinking that way. When the conference started 16 years ago, it was strictly tech, a convening of engineers, software developers and coders.

It demonstrates how far media organizations have come in embracing technology and using it in 'digitally native' ways to inform and engage their communities.
