Max Freund (@Max_Freund), interactive media journalist for the Cedar Rapids Gazette, and Zack Kucharski (@zackkucharski), newsroom manager of the Gazette, will be talking about some of the web-based projects the Gazette has done, and other compelling online journalism examples from around the web.
Once we talk about the past, we will turn an eye to what the future may hold. The Gazette is interested in hearing ideas for online journalism projects that could leave a lasting impact online - this includes potentially hiring local developers to implement these projects.
So come to hear about projects that have been done, and stay to brainstorm about what might be next... and maybe even be chosen to create it!
As usual, after the meetup everyone is invited to head over to Gus's for beverages and appetizers!
