A quick recap of Front 50

It’s the start of an exciting week as orientation for the University of Oregon’s School of Journalism & Communication takes place in the next few days. I haven’t had much time in recent weeks, but I wanted to share an early win even before the term started. In August, we convened 50 journalists, educators, community leaders and tech/business innovators to answer the question: How might a Center for Journalism Innovation and Civic Engagement provide a unique approach to truly transform the possibility and promise of journalism in the digital age? How might we, as a community, revitalize and reimagine the media ecosystem?

We called the event Front 50. A full report will be available in the coming weeks. More importantly, I’m excited by several projects that were hatched during this gathering. In the meantime, we published this short video that captured the energy and momentum produced from Day One.

I’d like to thank Studio McDermott for capturing these thoughts and the extremely quick turnaround in producing the video.

Around the O originally published a piece August 29th. The Center for Journalism Innovation and Civic Engagement will officially open in November.

Israel, Gaza, War & Data — i ❤ data -

A healthy democracy is contingent on having a healthy media ecosystem. As builders of these online networked spaces, how do we make sure we are optimizing not only for traffic and engagement, but also an informed public?

We need to build (analog and digital) places that encourages healthy public debate and discourse.
