A few last notes on the Networked Journalism Summit

Thanks to everyone who took a few minutes to talk with me yesterday. The whole putting-faces-with-names bit is really underrated. In no order (I’ll give chronological half a chance), with no hope of remembering everyone, here are a few notes to folks I met in person for the first time at the summit:

  • Scott Karp: Eager to see your choice of features for Publish2.
  • Rick Burnes: 9Neighbors looks promising – why not feed those posts back to an Atlas map?
  • Derek Willis: Somebody should be building an open source form-to-database tool in Django for quantitative data gathering, networked journalism style.
  • Jeff Jarvis: Excellent work with the invisible gong, sir.
  • Jay Rosen: Please don’t let the NextAssignment be something meta about the media.
  • Lisa Williams: Placeblogger is looking good these days!
  • Steve Garfield: I wonder if I can run iMovie HD and iMovie08 at the same time, IE6/7 style?
  • Dwight Silverman: Seriously, if I ever finish the preliminary data gathering for my thesis, you’re almost certainly on my list for a case study interview.
  • Barry Parr: The Central Coastsider Network?
  • Travis Henry: Reverse publishing can’t be the only carrot to drive participation, can it?
  • John Hassell: There must be a few hundred BaristaNets in Jersey who have never tried blogging; give them a chance.
  • Dave Winer: I’m having a good time with Flickr-to-Twitter. Check your picstream for one of you.
  • David Stern: Do you think it would work for breaking news, a la Wikipedia on big stories?
  • David Cohn: See you on the West side.

[UPDATE: I didn’t mention Jan Schaeffer or Chuck Olsen, both of whom I’ve met briefly once before, and Squared slipped my mind for no good reason. (What happens at the lunch table stays at the lunch table?)  I’ll see who else I can remember. Andy Carvin and I met in an amusing Tweettohandshake scenario.]

  1. Nice to see you, too, Ryan, however briefly. Funny how your thinking (about other Baristas in the offing) matches ours; we’ve got an interesting experiment starting soon that should help nurture the next hyperlocal Jersey phenom, and the next…
