What if I gave you 4 minutes and said, “Tell me how to fix journalism.”
Maybe you would think I was crazy, or just crazy enough to get something good out of you.
I don’t care how you do this:
- Power Point Presentation (got a cool theory or project?).
- Movie Skit.
- Historical Narrative.
- Interpretive Dance.
Just make it legal and make it good. You’ll get to showcase your ideas with other media professionals and citizens who are tired of just listening to the “huh and wow.”
This is not just for media professionals, as a recent journalism graduate, I specifically hope this group attracts young, aspiring people - anyone, really - who have ideas and are courageous enough to say “hey, what if?”
This is a community think tank that lets gives you full exposure to show us your thoughts, ideas and your solutions.
Let’s do this - the only way you fail is that you do NOTHING.
Newstweak isn’t just about putting you on the spot. We’re a group for networking, talking about news and getting involved with tweaking the news to MAKE IT WORK!
Got ideas? firstname.lastname@example.org
This is a new project, so if you’re interested in helping me set this up, let me know.
Newstweak.. is an idea that collective intelligence + frustrated journalists can get together and think up some genius ideas.
Newstweak.. is a think tank that will meet a couple times a month and let people discuss new ideas, projects and concerns about the way we experience news and storytelling.
Newstweak.. is a mixer for j-students, j-alums, writers and thinkers alike, who are all collectively saying: “Wait.. what now?”
Newstweak.. is a blog about new media (and old media, because we’re nice).
(we use tumblr because it is awesome)
