I had the honor of speaking at the University of Missouri Journalism School Centennial on Friday September 12. The journalism school is the oldest in the world and they were bringing together people from the journalism side as well as the technology side to talk about where things were going with the industry.
I had a great time talking about Aggregate Knowledge and learning about other cool companies like Texterity, Newsy, Daylife and SpinSpotter.
The new Reynolds Institute that they launched is a gorgeous new building devoted to the study of how media is evolving.
As the centennial was underway there were students running around with cellphone cameras interviewing people and putting it up on Youtube and blogging about the event. The idea was to give them a real taste of how new media was evolving.
It was terrific to see this actually being taught in school and to be a part of it.
