Truthiness in Digital Media conference examines misinformation, inaccuracy

Today I’m in Cambridge attending the Truthiness in Digital Media conference at Harvard’s Berkman Center. Here’s a quick overview of the event:

This conference will focus on exploring the many facets of this complex issue with an eye to crafting tools and strategies to ameliorate the negative impacts of deception, bias, and inaccuracy in the digital media ecosystem.  We hope to come to a better position to take advantage of the benefits promised by digital media while appreciating the positive aspects of creative media-making and probing the blurred boundaries between nefarious and beneficial media shaping practices.

You can follow along with the hashtag #truthicon or head over to the Nieman Journalism Lab for their liveblog. I’ll also write a post about the event this week.
