I am getting excited about the 2012 AAJA-JMSC media conference this Saturday, May 12 at the University of Hong Kong. Over 15 AAJA members traveled across Asia to attend the meeting.
The Asia chapter of Asian American Journalists Association and HKU’s Journalism & Media Studies Center co-organized the second media conference. I help put together a social media panel which featured CNN’s Kristie Lu Stout, Hong Kong-based social media consultant Jay Oatway and Knight Center for Digital Media Entrepreneurship Dan Gillmor to discuss the best practices for journalists to use social media in 2012. I also invited the director of Asia’s first social media lab, James She, to talk about the science behind social media.
We will have a session on mobile journalism and a hands-on interactive editing demonstration on Instagram.
Please find the full program here.
