news:rewired – hear more about ‘noise to signal’ from our speakers

On Friday 27 May Journalism.co.uk will bring you news:rewired – noise to signal, a one-day event for journalists and communications professionals who want to learn more about the latest tools and strategies to filter large datasets, social networks, and audience metrics into a clear signal for both the editorial and business side of the news industry.

The day will include sessions on: the data journalism toolkit and developing the data story; social media strategy, curation and news sourcing; and making the most of information about your audience.

We spoke to three of our speakers to give you a better idea of some of the issues that will be covered on the day.

Greg Hadfield, director of strategic projects, Cogapp, discusses his work on “open-data cities” and the benefits of open data to journalists, developers, and others; Robin Hamman, director of digital, Edelman, talks about innovation in social media strategy and where media organisations should start; and Matt Wells, blogs editor, the Guardian, explains why journalists should be making the most of social media platforms for news sourcing and verification.

Until 11 April tickets are available at our early-bird rate of £85 (+VAT), a discount of 35%. Buy tickets at this link.
