Hi there,

for those of you in Berlin or vincinity, check this out. It's free
(registration required via the website). Hope to see you there.


iRights.Lab and the Vodafone Institute for Society and Communications
cordially invite you to the international conference "Groundbreaking
Journalism - At the Intersection of Man and Machine", taking place in
Berlin on 3 April 2014.

William Gibson famously said, "The future is already here — it's just
not very evenly distributed". Using this insight as a guideline, we will
be discussing present and future developments at the intersection of
humans and machines in journalism with German and international
journalists, developers, media executives, and academics.



The event will be streamed live via the conference website.
