Austin, Texas: veja a programação do simpósio internacional de jornalismo online

Nos dias 1º e 2 de abril de 2011 (uma sexta e um sábado) acontece em Austin, no Texas (EUA), o 12º Simpósio Internacional de Jornalismo Online, organizado desde 1999 pelo professor br

asileiro Rosental Alves, diretor do Knight Center for Journalism in the Americas at UT Austin. O evento terá transmissão online, como já ocorreu nos outros anos – e alguns assuntos quentes serão discutidos no encontro.

A programação completa segue abaixo, mas destaco abaixo, com horário já adaptado para o Brasil, algumas falas que devem ser bem interessantes de acompanhar:

A fala da presidente e CEO da National Public Radio, excelência em jornalismo nos EUA, Vivian Schiller, (NPR), durante a sessão de abertura: sexta-feira (01 de abril), às 11h45 até às 12h30 (horário de Brasília). Logo em seguida vem outro bom debate, “Paywalls: Charging for news content. Does it work?” (das 12h30 até 13h45, hora Brasília).

No sábado, das 12h30 até 13h45 (horário de Brasília), destaco um assunto que alguns leitores deste site acharão interessante: Nonprofit journalism online: Is the model sustainable?
