Live today: A Nieman conference on the role of secrecy in journalism; follow along through video and blogs

Today, the Nieman Foundation is hosting a one-day conference entitled From Watergate to WikiLeaks: Journalism and Secrecy in the New Media Age. If you’re here in Cambridge for the event, come say hello! (We’re in the basement, by the washing machine.) But if you’re watching from afar, you can watch a video livestream and follow along with our liveblogs below, throughout the day. (You can also watch #niemanleaks on Twitter.)

The schedule in brief is below (all times Eastern); in full, it’s here:

9:00 a.m.: Introduction by Bob Giles and Barry Sussman

9:10 a.m.: Opening keynote by Kathleen Carroll, executive editor of the Associated Press

10:00 a.m.: Panel I on the international perspective, featuring journalists from Romania, Chile, South Africa, and Cambodia (Stefan Candea, Alejandra Matus, Rob Rose, and Kevin Doyle, respectively)

11:30 a.m.: Panel II on the U.S. perspective, featuring Walter Pincus (Washington Post), Danielle Brian (Project on Government Oversight), Clint Hendler (CJR), and Maggie Mulvihill (New England Center for Investigative Reporting)

1:15 p.m.: Keynote by Bill Keller, executive editor, The New York Times

2:30 p.m.: Panel III on the future of transparency, featuring Teru Kuwayama (Basetrack), Bill Allison (Sunlight Foundation), Aron Pilhofer (New York Times, DocumentCloud), David Kaplan (Int’l Consortium of Investigative Journalists), and John Bohannon (Science magazine), all moderated by the Lab’s own Megan Garber

4:00 p.m.: Wrapup

Immediately below is the live video, which should work from 9 a.m. to a little after 4 p.m. Underneath that are liveblogs for each of the panels and keynotes. Note that they’re separate from one another, so when one session is over, all the action will move to the next liveblog. (That’s a little awkward, but it should make things easier for looking back at each session after the fact.)
