Panel to discuss 'Future of Journalism'

A panel will discuss the future of journalism starting at 7:30 p.m. Thursday at Cubberley Auditorium on the Stanford campus. (Earlier we incorrectly stated another location.) Here's the description from the Stanford Department of Communication:
    The traditional print newspaper is struggling to stay profitable in the face of competition from electronic sources of information. What does this mean to the future of journalism? Discussing these issues will be Philip Balboni of the GlobalPost; Alberto Ibarguen of the Knight Foundation;Paul Steiger of ProPublica; Arthur Sulzberger of the New York Times and Martin Nisenholtz of the New York Times Digital Operations. Moderating will be Joel Brinkley of Stanford.

This conference is taking place at the Cubberley Auditorium on Stanford's campus -- not on Middlefield Road.

These guys may have missed the revolution. Palo Alto and the peninsula is a hotbed of journalism with four free daily papers duking it out every day, and I'll bet these speakers are so enthralled by the internet that they won't even mention it.

Will they allow questions from the audience? I'd love to hear somebody ask Steiger to justify the $570,000 annual salary he gets for running Pro Publica.

Pinchy's talk should be interesting---how he took the nation's most esteemed newspaper from his father and ran it into the ground, and is now looking for a new business model.
