In a few days, Knight Foundation is heading to the Windy City to attend the annual Online News Association conference in Chicago. We are looking forward to meeting up with old friends and making new ones!
Want to check out Knight-funded projects and hear more about Knight? Be sure to stop by our booth on the Midway, what ONA calls the “conference playground.” You’ll have a chance to learn about some of the latest tech in journalism--and to give some of the tools a try. Many other Knight-supported projects plan to showcase their work. Be sure to view our schedule to find out when their creators will be giving lightning talks and holding office hours at our booth on the Midway:
Also on the Midway, author and Knight Senior Adviser Eric Newton will launch an updated version of his digital book, “Searchlights and Sunglasses,” a history of the future of news that becomes a classroom tool in just one click. Please join us for his lightning talk on the Midway at 2:50 p.m. Thursday, followed by office hours at 3 p.m.

We’re excited to welcome Miami-Dade County as a partner for the 2015 Code for America Fellowship Program thanks to the support of Knight Foundation.
"Miami to welcome first Code for America Fellows in Florida" - Press release (09/23/14)
The Code for America Fellowship program pairs local governments with teams of mid-career, civic-minded technologists for one year. The governments and fellows explore answers to local challenges by engaging with the community, building applications and testing the results. Over the past four years, the fellowship program has produced more than 55 Web apps with 30 municipal governments and 103 fellows.
Knight Foundation supports transformational ideas that promote quality journalism, advance media innovation, engage communities and foster the arts. We believe that democracy thrives when people and communities are informed and engaged.
