Takeaways From A News Innovation Camp
By Adriana Lacy • Issue #1 • View online
Good Monday Morning! Welcome to The Social Status.
I’d love to hear your feedback: socialstatus@adrianalacy.com/@adriana_lacy

This weekend, I had the chance to head down to Philadelphia for #KleinCamp18, a news innovation unconference. I’m leaving feeling very hopeful about the future of news: not only on a large scale, but feeling hopeful about local media, independent media and startups.
I took notes at all of the sessions I attended, which you can find on my website here.
The most intriguing panel of day was definitely the keynote. In honor of the 10th anniversary Klein Camp, 10 journalism professionals shared what they thought the industry would look like in 10 years. Below are a few of my favorites.
What will journalism look like in 10 years?
Chris Wink (@Christopher Wink), Technical.ly
  • We’ll see journalism produced by organizations with entirely different business models. (Not ads or even subscriptions, but SaaS, agencies and more.
Jess Estepa (@JmEstepa), USA Today
  • We’ll witness the death of Twitter.
  • “We are elevating tweets to a level that I don’t think they necessarily deserve it.”
  • “My hope for the future is that we find other platforms that allow us to…define and discover journalism again.”
Dave Cole (@davecolephoto), The Wall Street Journal
  • Visual storytelling will become an even bigger part of how newsrooms, large and small, tell stories and reach and retain audiences.
  • “Photographers are one of the oldest professions…in 10 years, a photographer will be more important than a writer.”
Sean Blanda (@SeanBlanda), Invision
  • We’ll see the next generation of distribution platforms. Facebook and Google will no longer be the two biggest traffic sources for publications.
  • “It may be a long haul that some people can’t stomach, but the ones who can will be less reliant on outside sources and more self-sustaining.”
How do you see journalism changing in the next 10 years? I’d love to know. Simply reply to this email or tweet me at @adriana_lacy.
