The annual South by Southwest Interactive conference opened up its 2011 panel proposals for public review and discussion this week, and mobile journalism is well represented. Particularly close to our heart is one hosted by yours truly and Regina McCombs, your Mobile Media bloggers:
Media outlets still fighting to get their bearings on the Web are now facing an even greater challenge from the explosive growth of mobile devices. Fortunately, some innovative work is being done by journalists and other information providers that may help show a new way to distribute news. We’ll lead a discussion of some of best work now, the newest trends in mobile content, and how those trends and new ideas may combine for journalistic (and revenue) potential in the near future.
There are more than 2,000 other panels up for discussion on the SXSW website. A variety of the mobile-specific sessions are below, but you may want to check out the full list to see what will be discussed next spring in Austin.
