What we're about

We talk to top-tier reporters and media executives about the craft and business of journalism.

Topics include: the tactics involved in producing high-quality journalism, the economic environment facing media companies, and the impact that business considerations exert on the newsroom.

Who might be interested in our events?

1.) Journalists and media professionals, who would like to learn from their peers, talk shop, and hear how different organizations approach industry challenges.

2.) CEOs, operators, and investors looking for some insight into the world of technology and business journalism.

3.) PR reps, for obvious reasons.

Before and after panels, we generally hang out with beer and pizza.

This Meetup is run by the good people at Haymaker (http://haymaker.co).
