Description

At day's end, at the Pittsburgh "Hack the News" MediaThon co-hosted by the Pennsylvania NewsMedia Association, we talked about what news is. LOL Cats? The Kardashians. Speaking up front are PNA president Teri Henning, newspaper publisher Tom Northrop and MediaThon founder Dorian Benkoil. A MediaThon is for people gathered to create media around a specific purpose or cause. For an afternoon, a day, or a weekend, we get together in small groups, both cooperating and competing to see what we can make, how far we can go, and what we can accomplish, while having fun. See MediaThon.org for more.
