Killing the news bundle: Social journalism with founder of Friendster, Nuzzel

  • Sep 25, 2013 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Jonathan Abrams pioneered social networking by creating Friendster. His latest project is Nuzzel, which helps users see the news their friends are reading. New Washington Post owner Jeff Bezos says he wants to bring back the daily habit of a news bundle once served by newspapers. But startups like Nuzzel blow that thinking apart, giving readers the news regardless of the source based on their social sphere.

Jonathan coded the first version of Nuzzel himself and has long experience being on both sides of the news. We'll talk with Jonathan about his perspective on journalism and the startup world at Founders Den, a shared office space and private club for entrepreneurs that Jonathan co-founded, and where Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom keeps an office in San Francisco.

Agenda:

630pm: Gather, networking

7p-8p: Demo and interview with Jonathan Abrams, followed by Q&A

8p-830p: More networking

    Am looking forward to a discussion about the civic implications of news funneled by social sphere.
