Description

Jay Rosen teaches journalism at New York, where he has been on the faculty since 1986. From 1999 to 2005 he served as chair of the Department. In 1999 Yale University Press published his book about the civic journalism movement, What Are Journalists For? Rosen is the author of PressThink, a blog about journalism and its ordeals in the age of the Net (http://www.pressthink.org), which he introduced in September 2003. In 2006 he founded New Assignment.Net, his research vehicle for open source journalism projects. In 2007-08 he was co-publisher, with Arianna Huffington, of OffTheBus.Net, an experiment in pro-am election coverage that eventually drew 12,000 participants. On Twitter Rosen coined the term mindcasting to mean a style of sharing links and connected thoughts, in contrast with "lifecasting." He is found at http://twitter.com/jayrosen_nyu About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
