Silicon Valley and Journalism conference at Columbia’s Tow Center
November 12, 2015
Today I’m excited to attend a Tow Center Journalism Conference on the relationship between Silicon Valley and journalism. Unfortunately it’s sold out at this point, but here’s the updated schedule.
I’m particularly excited for the 10:45am panel which features Zeynep Tufecki and Kate Crawford, among others, discussing ethics arising from the relationship between Silicon Valley platforms like Facebook and Google and journalism, especially when it comes to censorship and digital rights.
Also, one of my favorite technology journalists Julie Angwin is speaking on a panel at noon, which is going to be interesting. And of course the brilliant and amazing Emily Bell, who runs the Tow Center, is moderating a couple of discussions. An excellent line up, I’m lucky to live so close.
Speaking of critical journalism, I was quoted in a recent piece on mic.com which focused on predictive policing, written by Jack Smith.
