Newsroom of the future

Chris O’Brien discusses the newsroom of the future.

I’m new to all this Newsy stuff but I’ve seen first hand the benefits of ninemsn and the National Nine News team sitting together. Technology, whatever it is, cannot replace the 360 feedback you get from face-to-face conversation and as they say in the article, who would want to miss out on the energy a breaking news story generates.

I know the stock exchange lost the energy when they moved brokers to screen starers but they benefited from speed and accuracy. A virtual newroom would benefit neither of those.

Anyway, Chris is amongst other to organise The Next Newsroom Conference on April 3-4 at Duke University. Registration is now open.

Max, are you going to be flying me business class?
