Goldberg with law firm of Fletcher, Heald & Hildreth, P.L.C., and attorney Terry Mutchler with Pepper Hamilton LLP will be available to answer any and all questions editors come up with. They won’t be giving “legal advice,” but you’ll probably learn a thing or two that will help you answer some of those thorny questions you face again and again. And the best part: The meter will be off! So come prepared to ask or just draft off the questions others might be asking.

This session is sponsored by Pepper Hamilton LLP.

Awards luncheon
Keynote, “Self and Story:” Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Alex Tizon spent two decades writing about other people for the Los Angeles Times and The Seattle Times. In 2014, he published a memoir-cultural history, "Big Little Man: In Search of My Asian Self," a personal story about race, outsiderdom and confronting a lifelong shame. What is the relationship between personal narrative and journalism? Tizon argues that sometimes—perhaps more often than generally accepted among news editors—the most honest way to tell a story is through the first-person point of view, and the most compelling story you can tell is your own.

Introduction/Awards presentation: ASNE President Chris Peck and APME President Alan Miller

The luncheon honors winners of:

  • ASNE awards for Batten Medal for public service journalism, Burl Osborne Award for Editorial Leadership, Punch Sulzberger Award for Online Storytelling, Deborah Howell Award for Nondeadline Writing, Mike Royko Award for Commentary/Column Writing, Distinguished Writing on Diversity, Local Accountability Reporting, Community Service Photojournalism and Breaking News Writing
  • APME awards for Public Service, First Amendment, International Perspective, Digital Storytelling, Innovator of the Year for College Students, Community Engagement, Al Neuharth Award for Innovation in Investigative Journalism, Best Mobile Platform of the Year and Photo of the Year
  • APME awards to AP staffers for Deadline Reporting, Enterprise Reporting, Feature Writing, John L. Dougherty Award for younger staffers, Best Use of Multimedia, Best Use of Video, Charles Rowe Award for distinguished state reporting, News Single Photo, News Story Photo, Feature Single Photo and Feature Story Photo
  • Robert G. McGruder Award for Diversity Leadership

News partnerships in the era of social media
In May, nine major news organizations began publishing articles straight to Facebook under the social network’s long-anticipated product, Instant Articles. But that’s just one of a number of moves by social media and tech firms to partner with newsrooms. There’s Twitter’s Project Lightning, Apple News, Google News Lab and initiatives by others to play in the news ecosystem. What does this all mean for news publishers? We ask a top newspaper editor and representatives from the social media world to discuss what’s in store for these relationships.

The War on science: What journalists need to know

The Earth is 10,000 years old. Vaccinations cause autism. Global warming isn't happening. Science would say otherwise to all of these. Yet millions of Americans aren't believing what science has proved. Why? Experts discuss today's  `War on Science' and what journalists need to know about it.

"The Burgans & Chan Songs & Stories Concert"

On the 50th anniversary of the We Five hits “You Were on My Mind” and “Let’s Get Together,” We Five founder Jerry Burgan and alums Debbie Burgan and Tholow Chan are returning to the San Francisco area for a special concert for the ASNE-APME conference. Hear them sing their classic Billboard Top 40 hits, as well as songs you know and love.

The stories part of the concert will mix memories with humor from the three band members as they talk about the folk-rock revolution and the impact that it is still making on music today. Those who attended a recent concert said it was the “most enjoyable event” they’ve attended in recent memory. Another said she had a "fabulous time" and that The Burgans and Chan put on "quite a show" that "brought back lots of fun memories."

Jerry Burgan also combined with California journalist Alan Rifkin to write the book “Wounds to Bind: A Memoir of the Folk-Rock Revolution” that was recently released in paperback. Join us for this special performance only during the conference!

APPM: Eyetracking visuals

Introduction: Danny Gawlowski, APPM President

In an age where images are instantaneous and easily shared around the world, what characteristics make a photograph worth publishing? Sara Quinn’s “Eyetracking Photojournalism” study for the National Press Photographers Association gives insight into how people perceive the quality of journalistic photographs, from those taken by seasoned professionals to cell phone images that capture everyday life. This research combines eye track testing with extensive interviews asking people their thoughts on storytelling and quality and what makes an image memorable and worth sharing.

Following the money in 2016

Introduction: Kathleen Carroll 

The early returns are in, and it’s clear that more money will wash through the nation’s politics than ever before during the 2016 election. The effects of the Supreme Court’s decision in Citizens United continue to evolve, increasing the challenges of tracking who is giving to candidates and how the money donated is spent. The effects aren’t just felt in the race for president, either, but have trickled down to elections at the state and local level. We’ll review the state of play in campaign finance and, with the panel, offer strategies to help follow the money all the way to Election Day.

Digital Showcase exhibition
Digital Showcase features innovative startups, organizations and individuals providing research, consulting, software and other services to transform newsrooms through digital storytelling, culture change and audience engagement. 

Find some time to go around each table and learn what these exhibitions offer! Here is a preview: 

Gus D’Angelo – Comigama Interactive Comics

Gus D’Angelo is founder of Comigama Interactive Comics. Gus is a former editorial artist for The Washington Post and the San Francisco Chronicle and games animator at TinyCo and Google. Comigama is a digital production studio and mobile-first platform for highly engaging, editorial interactives that blend traditional editorial cartoons and comic strips with mini-games. D'Angelo started building “Comigama” as a 2014 JSK fellow at Stanford University.

Comigama has recently produced custom content for Al Jazeera, Sierra Magazine and DailyKos. Our interactive “comic/games” integrate into sites as easily as YouTube videos and play across web browsers and mobile devices.

Much like how traditional comics syndicates supported a newspaper’s business goals, Comigama’s products are highly entertaining vehicles designed to work with today’s digital news organizations to increase audience and revenue.

Ann Grimes – Brown Institute for Media Innovation

Ann Grimes is the associate director and an affiliated faculty member of the Brown Institute for Media Innovation in the School of Engineering. In addition, she is a former staff writer and editor for The Wall Street Journal where she covered technology and business.

The Brown Institute for Media Innovation is a collaborative effort between Stanford and Columbia Universities, designed to encourage and support new endeavors in media innovation. Stanford’s focus is on media technology, and the Institute is anchored in the School of Engineering. Columbia’s focus is on content, and the Institute is anchored in the Graduate School of Journalism.

Once a year, the Institute invites the Columbia and Stanford communities to submit proposals for Magic Grants. We look for ideas that are original and have the potential to bring true innovation to the media world.

Typically, a Magic Grant supports a small team of graduate students or postgraduates who implement a prototype or create an innovative media product. Successful projects might continue as business ventures or industry (and ASNE member) partnerships outside the universities.

Vikki Porter and Michele McLellan – Knight Digital Media Center

Vikki Porter, a veteran news executive and digital transformation expert, is executive director of the Knight Digital Media Center at USC Annenberg. Michele McLellan, an expert in leadership and organizational culture change, is senior program consultant at KDMC.

Culture change. Transformation. Innovation.  The Knight Digital Media Center has a 10-year proven record of helping top news executives and organizations turn those 21st century buzz words into attainable reality.

Now KDMC offers a proven process to speed digital transformation of legacy newsrooms, enabling them to better engage their audiences on digital and social platforms. The recently published "Digital Leads: 10 Keys to Newsroom Transformation" details the KDMC process applied at the Journal Media Group newsrooms.

Under its unique “learning partnership," KDMC provides customized consultative services, coaching and strategic training that helps local newsrooms become vital news providers in the digital age.

David Sarno – Lighthaus

David Sarno runs San Francisco-based Lighthaus and is a former technology journalist at the Los Angeles Times with degrees in computer science and creative writing.

Lighthaus uses interactive, videogame-like graphics to help tell stories in news, education and healthcare. We like to say that an interactive graphic can be worth a thousand pictures.

Over the last 40 years, the videogame industry has gone from Pong, two dots and a line sliding across a screen, to huge, beautiful, living worlds that can manifest just about any fantasy. 

Lighthaus takes these powerful storytelling tools and aims them at reality: allowing the reader to explore the inside of the human body, great events in history or the underground workings of an oil tanker. We are at the nexus of journalism, technology and storytelling.

Samaruddin Stewart – Verified Pixel Project

Samaruddin Stewart is a journalist and media technologist based in the San Francisco Bay Area, and is the co-founder and project lead for the grant-funded Verified Pixel Project.

When breaking news happens, there’s likely going to be a photograph or video of it. That sheer fact has opened up new opportunities for news media. More people are taking newsworthy visuals and sharing them with social networks and directly with news organizations, providing valuable information and context to news events.

The increase in available visuals has led to a concurrent rise in manipulated or misrepresented images intended to deceive or sway opinion. From the recent earthquake in Nepal, the Baltimore riots and the downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17, we’ve seen visuals that were meant to misrepresent, manipulate, and misinform.

The Verified Pixel Project has built a beta service that has unified several popular existing image verification tests in one workflow tool. Our unique technical approach will help demystify the image verification process, allow it to scale to demand, and open up verification capability to a larger and broader audience. 

Anh Hoà Truong – Virtual Reality journalism

Anh Hoà Truong is a journalist and a consultant of Virtual Reality, working with newsrooms including Le Figaro in France and with organizations like MediaX at Stanford University.

Never before has Virtual Reality felt so real. Just a few years ago, it was a tech fans’ dream. Now, with a $10 Google Cardboard headset, everybody can experience this immersive medium.

As the big tech companies are getting into the act, VR will soon be everywhere, from our smartphones to our living rooms. VR provides newsrooms with a powerful new set of tools to create informative, engaging features for their users.

Virtual Reality pieces allow users to live the story in an intimate, visceral way, as though they were at the center of the scene as it unfolds around them.

Much of the foundation that legacy newspapers long have believed are pillars of journalism ethics are, in fact, eroding or gone.

Where is this headed? Is there an ethical foundation for journalism today? Or, are we simply rushing to anything goes?
