UPDATE: The proposal has been accepted! Session page: Have an impact. Then measure it.
I’ve proposed a session for the Online News Association 2012 conference in San Francisco on:
Better ways to measure journalism
If you’re interested, please up-vote/comment soon! Voting closes Thursday, April 12.
It would begin with an overview of interesting metrics in other fields, how we can learn from those and how we can possibly apply them to journalism. After that groundwork is laid, there would be a moderated discussion among the participants of other examples and how we could best implement new metrics.
For more background on the idea, check out:
