The Journalism Interactive conference took place at the University of Maryland in the US this weekend.
One of the people presenting was Amy Webb of Webbmedia, who also shared her tech trends at the Online News Association conference (#ONA11), held in Boston last month.
A post on Reportr.net lists Webb’s tips on the top technology trends for academics, which are also of interest to journalists.
One of Webb’s tips is to use Greplin, a search engine for your own private files which allows you to type in a keyword of phrase and find uses of that term in your personal accounts, including Facebook, Twitter and Gmail. (Greplin was recommended by us as one of 10 incredibly useful browser add-ons for journalists.)
