Doing Journalism That Matters

Journalism That Matters. We know about that. Have you checked out this group, its website, conferences and programs? http://www.journalismthatmatters.net/

I attended a JTM conference in Seattle several years ago and found it informative and inspirational.  Numerous start-ups, non-profits and news outlets from across media were represented. The communities they served ranged from hyper-local to those formed around interests and issues, especially environmental concerns.

JTM just hired a new editor-at-large. Josh Wolf, a freelance journalist and documentary filmmaker, who will lead the Illuminations Project, which focuses on today’s journalism practices that work. Check it out.
