So your news organization has a mobile app. Congratulations! But if you’re just shoveling the work you’re already doing onto a smaller screen, you’re ignoring the fundamental reasons people are consuming their news on mobile devices.

Editors from four apps will discuss how they’ve actually changed their content to suit a mobile audience that has entirely different needs and desires than your www. It's a new, important area of exploration for journalists; hear from those leading the charge on how you could be doing things differently (and what kind of journalism jobs that creates). We'll have:

Moderated by Daniel Victor (@bydanielvictor (, The New York Times

Doors will open at 6:30 p.m.; the discussion will begin at 7 p.m. Light snacks and beverages will be served. We welcome announcements of job openings, which will take place at the end. Follow the conversation online with #ONANYC! NOTE: No one who is not on the registration list will be admitted (security will have the attendee list downstairs). Refunds only in the event of cancellation.
