Community foundations, news organizations and technology innovators are in Miami this morning for Knight Foundation’s 2012 Media Learning Seminar, where leaders from the various fields will explore what they can learn from one another and discuss the growing opportunities for effective collaboration.
More than 400 people are registered this year, making this the biggest Media Learning Seminar yet. But you don’t have to be in Miami to keep up with the sessions, speakers and presentations. For the first time, much of the conference in Miami today (Feb. 20) and tomorrow will be livestreamed. You can find the link and schedule at knightfoundation.org/live.
We’ll also be tweeting @knightfdn, the foundation’s main twitter account. You can keep up with the hashtag #infoneeds, that participants and observers here will be using.
And this blog will be featuring posts throughout the two-day conference. I’m Elise Hu, a digital journalist at NPR and Knight Foundation’s conference blogger for the seminar this year. If you have questions throughout the event, feel free to tweet me @elisewho and use the #infoneeds hashtag.
Featured speakers include Eli Pariser, author of The Filter Bubble, MIT’s Ethan Zuckerman, and Dan Gillmor, founding director of the Knight Center for Digital Media Entrepreneurship.
