Wikipedia for Journalists and other advice coming at Digital Journalism Camp

If I were closer, I'd be over at Steven Walling’s presentation of “Wikipedia for journalists” on August 1. The video is a preview of one of the programs at the Digital Journalism Camp in Oregon.

What's a Digital Journalism Camp?

A post on the camp site says:
"It’s where traditional print and broadcast journalism, blogging and web-based innovation meet. This is not some far-off future for the industry. It’s happening right now, all around us. And reporters, bloggers, editors, and broadcasters have a lot they can learn from each other."
There's even a why posted:
"I want us to shut up about about the death of newspapers and start talking about how we, as journalists, are innovating right now — what’s working, what’s not, and how we can get better at what we do."
Abraham Hyatt left a comment on my original post today to let me know that The Oregonian is only providing space, not hosting, the Digital Journalism Camp on August 1. By providing the space, though, the Advance Publications news organization let the organizers eliminate an admission fee.
