My friend Steve Outing wrote about attending the Global Individuated Newspaper Conference in Denver yesterday.
In sum, the conference title muddles the theme: personal news. (Really, isn't "Global Individuated" somewhat like "Jumbo Shrimp"? Hat tip to the late George Carlin.)
Steve saw the event as full of messages and rally cries for the news business; in effect, "get off our cans and start offering personalized news services on our sites."
