Join us as we bring DC Media Innovations to New York! We'll examine how innovation in tech affects news and media. Our larger goal with this series is to explore the question of how large media organizations — both old and new — can continue to innovate and build products to serve users, while also serving their journalistic mission. At this event, we'll focus on the product development process.
