On Gatekeepers and InfoValets

Going on now: “From Gatekeepers to InfoValets: Work Plans for Sustaining Journalism,” a future-of-journalism conference in Washington, DC. Convened by the Donald W. Reynolds Journalism Institute at the Missouri School of Journalism—in collaboration with The George Washington University School of Media & Public Affairs and the Committee of Concerned Journalists—the conference is considering such of-the-moment topics in journalism as collaboration, personalization, and, yes, business models. (Here’s hoping it will also consider finding a better term for journalism’s social role than “InfoValet.”)

Anyway, you can watch the proceedings, live until 4p EST, below.
