Six days after Ian Tomlinson’s death at the G20 protests in London, Guardian reporter Paul Lewis had twenty reliable witnesses who could be placed on a map at the time of the incident – and only one of them had come from the traditional journalistic tool of a contact number in his notebook.
The newest journalism class at the University of Miami gives digital natives a chance to research, test and pitch new business ideas – and learn a thing or two from PitchIt Challenge winner Lucas Sommer.
The winners and finalists of the We Media PitchIt challenge gain access to an amazing group of commercial and social venture experts. Some of the mentors will serve as judges for the challenge, some will meet the day before for a coaching session with the finalists, most will attend and join the discussions at We Media NYC – and all of them have committed to providing one-on-one advice to the challenge winners.
Meet us in New York April 5 and help kick off the We Media NYC conference. We’re teaming up with PBS MediaShift for a mixer from 6 pm to 9 pm at Solas Bar, 232 E 9th St (between Stuyvesant St & 2nd Ave). Click to RSVP.
