Barcamp News Innovation 2014 micro-grants for attendee travel

Mar 23, 2014   //   by Christopher Wink   //   2014, blog  //  No Comments

Amtrak train

The legacy of Barcamp News Innovation has been a gathering of smart people thinking and working on the future of informing communities in a welcoming, informal and organic way. It’s the spirit of the unconference.

That means we’ve long attracted interested people from as far as Vermont, Florida and Washington state and beyond. We know that costs and while this valuable professional development day can surely be justified — just a $5 ticket, so it’s all in the travel — we want to support those with fewer resources who might be otherwise unable to attend.

So we’re thrilled to announce that, in partnership with our organizing partner the Center for Public Interest Journalism at Temple University, we’ll be helping to cover the travel expenses of 4-5 out-of-market attendees. (We have $1,000 from CPIJ and so we’re estimating covering up to $200 for five attendees, but we’re open to supporting fewer people coming from farther or more people coming from closer). This is our first attempt at this, so feedback is welcome too.

To be considered for a micro-grant, please fill out this form here before midnight on Sunday, April 13.

We plan on having winners make the given travel purchases (train, flight, cab, etc.) and then submit receipts. We can be flexible on that and expedite payment.

Schedule for BarCamp NewsInnovation 2013

Apr 15, 2013   //   by Christopher Wink   //   2013, blog  //  No Comments


One of the biggest changes to the 5th annual BCNI will be some pre-planned sessions to kick things off, so we wanted to highlight some of those sessions with an overall look at the tightened schedule.

We’re also welcoming our friends from the Philly Content Strategy group to bring new faces with a cohosted event: “Content Camp is an unconference that brings together the artistic, strategic, entrepreneurial, and tech communities to exchange ideas and collaborate on the future of content creation, consumption, and compensation.”

Of the five rooms, two will have a broader Content Camp focus and three will look more narrowly at news.


News Hackathon pre-brainstorming

More than 30 journalists and technologists came together in the new Inquirer newsroom today for an introduction to and brainstorming for the BCNI News Hackathon. See our event working document here.

The event, hosted by Interstate General Media and sponsored by the Center for Public Interest Journalism, included the highlight of a handful of hackathon projects that have continued to have success and then the sharing of ideas of data sets and projects reporters would like to see created next month.

The Knight-Mozilla Open News project also supported the time for organizing the event by sponsoring BCNI.
