Breaking News: Real-Time Takeaways From the Boston Marathon Bombing Coverage

This summer, ONA led a McCormick Foundation-funded, off- the-record workshop to improve processes for social media use during breaking news events, with the Boston Marathon bombings as a focus. Teams included journalists, social media experts, technologists and designers. We’ll share what we’ve learned and made, and attendees will have a chance to continue the conversation.

This is a partnered day-long workshop with IEEE VisWeek 2013. Participants are encouraged to attend the other two sessions:


— This session will have live video

— This session will have recorded audio
