2014 Journalism Interactive: A Remix of Lessons, Links, Tips & Tools

The drones are attacking! Hello from Terrapin heaven, the heart of College Park, Md. I am currently j-geeking out at the University of Maryland for the 2014 version of Journalism Interactive, “the conference on journalism education and digital media.”

I live-blogged the #jiconf last year from the Hippodrome at the University of Florida. I’m going to gamely attempt the feat once more over the next two days at UMD by sitting in on a variety of speeches, pitches, panels, training sessions and a teach-a-thon. This time around, I’m going to follow the edict of opening speaker Richard Koci Hernandez and embrace the power of the remix — sharing the observations and mini-commentaries tweeted by all attendees employing the hashtag #jiconf.


My unofficial goal is to accrue and share as many practical and inspiring tips, tools, links, quotes and anecdotes as possible. Check out this post repeatedly for (hopefully) regular updates. But first, some drone fun. JI organizers unleashed a drone over the unsuspecting audience to kick-off the proceedings this morning. Here’s a video of what the machine recorded in real-time as it hovered above and around us.
