PRESENTATION 2: An Introduction to Newspack by WordPress.com with Nick Wright

In January, Automattic/WordPress announced it is building Newspack. Slated for launch in July, Newspack is a new, low-cost suite of publishing tools for small- to mid-size newsrooms. This talk will give a flyover intro of what Newspack is, what it might look like, and what the WordPress community can expect when it deploys. It's a tough time to be in journalism and media. By blending business and editorial tools in one place, WordPress seems like it's wants to help local news stay afloat.
