I’m heading to Harvard today for the 2008 Georges Conference, hosted by Harvard’s Nieman Foundation for Journalism. Strangely, I can’t find any information about the conference online at the Nieman Foundation’s website, and searching for it only brings up this site from last year’s “fourth annual” conference. Here’s the schedule for this year’s conference.

I’ll keep updating as the day goes on.

This seems to be quite the weekend for conferences though. NextNewsroom is happening in South Carolina. I’ve been following it, vaguely live, here on Innovation in College Media. Meanwhile, part of the dailypennsylvanian.com team is headed to Yale for the Yale Daily News’s first ever Web Conference. We’re the only College Publisher hosted site going, and hopefully they can come back having picked the brains of the people at the Cornell Daily Sun and Columbia Spectator, both of whom use Drupal.

It looks like the Spectator has built their site making writers into a CCK node type, while the Cornell Daily Sun is using Drupal’s default user management, with whoever enters the article into the CMS listed as the author. This fits more in with this very ambitious proposal to manage story workflow and assigning online.

Fun stuff.
