After Leveson, is Citizen Journalism the answer?
Start date: 08/06/13
The event is being hosted by the Citizen journalism Educational Trust and the-Latest.Com, and builds on the success of their Media and the Riots conference that brought young people and journalists face to face. The Leveson Inquiry accepted the conference report as evidence.
Top bloggers, campaigners for greater press regulation, including Hacked Off, those opposed to it, citizen journalists, scholars, students and members of the public will be at the one-day conference.
In the wake of the outcry from Fleet Street’s finest about them not wanting to be regulated by law, the debate has turned to online news and comment. Will bloggers, and sites like our, face draconian fines if lawyers are set loose on them? Or, should they be excluded from new regulation?
After the 2011 summer riots, some police and politicians, aware that young people share a lot of news using social media, urged the closing down of internet services including Twitter and BlackBerry Messenger, during times of civil unrest. Yet the post Leveson Inquiry debate seems to have by-passed discussion that the way forward may not be with “big media”, whose circulations are tumbling, but with alternative reporting by the people for the people in the shape of citizen journalism.
Can newspapers recapture the vast space now occupied by a growing army of online bloggers and other members of the public publishing news, views and images unhindered by the demands of rich, powerful and partisan proprietors? Then again, maybe “big media” need not fear citizen journalism because it is a passing fad unable to uphold professional standards in an unaccountable wild west that is the World Wide Web.
These important questions and more will be discussed in a lively debate by key figures in the media industry. We hope you will be able to join us.

Data's not just for improving corporate performance — it's also for talking trash about sports, exposing scandals and identifying celebrity overexposure. Tableau Public is Tableau's free platform for working with public data. You'll be amazed at the breadth of subjects that Public authors have covered—including how to improve your fantasy team performance!
In this session, Lee Mooney will show us what it means to be a Fanalyst: someone who obsesses over sports data in a highly analytical way. Lee has done some fantastic work on European football players and will share with us some of his insights on analysing sports.
John Burn-Murdoch, data journalist at The guardian, will also speak about how data is changing the world of journalism and specifically the work they have done at the world-famous Guardian Datablog.
Join this session to hear from these speakers, get an overview of the world of Tableau Public, and compete in a fun dashboard-building contest. At the close of the session we’ll head straight to the cocktail reception for the opening of the Tableau Customer Conference.

Mobile Media Strategies
Start date: 26/09/13
End date: 27/09/2013
Tablet usage has surged faster than anyone could have expected and smartphones are becoming more sophisticated than ever. Media businesses of every kind have good reason to be worried: Mobile devices offer a new competitive landscape, add complexity to online advertising and demand new investment in product development.
But there are also huge monetisation opportunities. New product types, cross-platform bundles, rich ad formats and a highly engaged multi-platform user all offer the chance to open up new revenue streams and bolster existing ones – if you get it right.
For this reason, TheMediaBriefing.com is holding the third annual Mobile Media Strategies, a two day event focusing on mobile monetisation strategies, on 26 - 27 September 2013, at America Square, London.
