Lightning Talks

ONA is hosting its first lightning talks round this year. Akin to the lightning talks given at the NICAR conference, we ask speakers keep it short and sweet; they’ll have five minutes to speak on whatever they want. The lightning talk has an official conference slot on Saturday, Oct. 19 at 4 p.m. in Marquis Ballroom B.

This year’s chosen lightning talks:
- Journalism and Porn
- Digital Journalism and the Way of the Samurai
- Where Do Good Ideas Come From
- Crediting and Inclination to Share Content
- Emotions and the Art of Sharing
- Play Around With Your Tweets
- Blowing Up the Live Blog
- Facebook and Memes
- Death of the Talking Head
- Press Freedom and Funding Watchdog Journalism
