San Antonio Journalism Trust Conference Success

It's late Tuesday night, and I finally have a chance to write about the very successful A Wake Up Call: Can Quality and Trust Save Journalism? conference.

I was too busy to blog it, but here is the first of a few blogs from speaker Craig Newmark, pictured here.

MySanAntonio.com has been writing a lot about the issue. And here is basically what I said in my opening statement.
More than 100 academics, journalists and citizens attended it. Our partners, the folks at the Reynolds School of Journalism at the University of Nevada, Reno will be writing a special report, plus George White and David Willis of the Center for Communications and Community at UCLA and David Gyimah, producer, journalist and senior lecturer at the University of Westminster, were making videos of it.

So in time we will be posting lots of information about what we heard and learned. Now it is time to hit the sack.
